Nevertheless, one analyst, using data provided by the Office of Management and

Budget (OMB), measures DoD combating terrorism and WMD defense spending during

fiscal year 2001 as follows:6

Combating terrorism

$4,456

Force Protection

$3,521

Counterterrorism/SOF

$ 579

Consequence Management

$ 265

Intelligence

$ 112

National Security WMD

$ 476

DoD WMD

$ 275

Table 2. FY 2001 Combating Terrorism and WMD Defense Spending

    - Figures in millions

$9,684

The CB Defense Program’s FY 2001 President’s budget requested an additional

$835 million split nearly equally between procurement, research and development, and

science and technology programs.7 This brings the total to over $10.5 billion. Yet

another source estimates the total to be slightly higher--in the range of $11 billion.8

each of the services and within many of the defense agencies, some experts still conclude

that not enough is being done. For example, another finding from the Fletcher

conference stated that, “the enormous consequences of WMD incidents justify the

increased effort and expense to prepare for this looming threat.” “The United States must

press ahead with counterproliferation programs,” it said.9
