A group of lawmakers have asked President Obama to go into greater detail about the billions in federal spending going to more than a dozen intelligence organizations, something thats been referred to as the black budget. Details of that budget were leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden and published by The Washington Post last August. That caught the attention of 62 members of Congress, who are asking Obama to disclose the total amount of money those 16 different intelligence agencies requested in the 2015 fiscal year budget, which is expected to be unveiled next month. We believe the top line number for each agency should be made public, with no risk to national security, for comparative purposes across all federal government agencies, the letter, which was drafted by Peter Welch (D-VT) and Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) says.
