Congress tightens belt, trims spy budget for 2013

“House lawmakers voted Monday on a Senate-passed bill to slightly boost the president’s $72 billion budget request for intelligence agencies including the CIA, adding extra cash for counterterrorism and counterintelligence.

But that’s down from roughly $80 billion in 2012, which marked the peak of intelligence spending since the 9/11 attacks.”
