The world of spies is, of course, very secretive. For a long time, the amount of money governments were funding their intelligence agencies with was wrapped in secrecy. Yet over ten years ago, the US government began to be slightly more open on the overall budget. Yet in 2013, thanks to leaked documents, we got to see what exactly the money was being spent on within the black budget. Today, we’re going to examine the budget in detail. On top of this, we’ll see how much money other governments around the world are spending on their spy programmes.
Now for the spoiler paragraph. If you like surprises, we suggest you stop reading and watch the video multiple times. Firstly, we’ll see the overall yearly budgets the US spend on their agencies. We’ll even see the sharp increase when Donald Trump became president. Then, we have the secret black budget details and classified information that was leaked by Edward Snowden to the website founded by Julian Assange, Wikileaks. We’ll see what projects the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA), and more funnel their budget towards. Then, we have the security costs around the world. All of which are worth millions of dollars, some in the billions! We have the UK with their intelligence agencies. One of which inspired James Bond. We also have Canada’s and Australia’s intelligence services to examine. Finally, we’ll see just how much cash the US spent on the infamous Bay of Pigs Invasion disaster.
