WASHINGTON (AP) — For the first time, the entire U.S. intelligence budget has been published, and it's just over $80 billion for 2010.

Figures released Thursday show $27 billion of that goes to military intelligence. Steven Aftergood, a secrecy specialist at the Federation of American Scientists, says the release is "the most complete disclosure we have ever had."

It's something the new Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had promised to push for.

His office says its share is $53.1 billion, which covers the CIA and some of the other 16 intelligence agencies.
