Gabor Rona, "How Many People Has Barack Obama Killed With
Drones?"  "The actual number of drone deaths is at least 200 times the
'22 top Al-Qaeda leaders plus Bin Laden' noted by President Obama.
Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) recently floated the number 4,700.
Independent studies by both U.S. and British investigators have
confirmed numbers in that ballpark, with many of those being 'collateral
damage.'" (May 31, 2013,

The official estimate that military/war/aggression spending ("defense")
amounts to 19% of the federal budget is a lie.  Many military
expenditures--like nuclear weapons--are concealed in other categories
of the budget, e.g., Energy or Transportation.  Nor does the Pentagon
budget reflect war funding, foreign military spending, or national
security. And when you factor in the portion of federal debt payments
resulting from military spending, plus secret "black-box" projects and
CIA/NSA operations, the figure is well over 50%, and, in my
guesstimate, more like two-thirds.  U.S. military spending is equal to
the military spending of the next 15 countries combined.  The U.S.
maintains 800 military bases, overseas prisons, and torture centers in well
over 100 countries.  America is a bankrupt empire trying to rule the
world through force and propaganda.  (Rady Ananda, "More than 50%
of US Government Spending Goes to the Military,"

Income Tax Money Really Goes,"
