This week, John Cappel joins Michael to discuss the Overseas Contingency Operations budget. Cappel work on Budgeting for Foreign Affairs and Defense (BFAD) at the Stimson Center. John and his colleague, Russel Rumbaugh, just put out a report “A Step Backward, or More to Go? FY15 Overseas Contingency Operations Request.”
The Stimson Center focusses on global security challenges, and Cappel and his colleagues in BFAD look into where the money is actually going.
Cappel explains how OCO, or Overseas Contingency Operations, contains budget requests that are like supplemental war budgets. Historically, supplemental budgets often arose in response to some kind of unexpected event, like a natural disaster or some kind of military conflict. In the past, these supplemental budgets gave way to budgets that took into account the actual conflicts and the supplemental budget requests went away. The OCO, however, has been around for a long time now.
Many feel that the OCO budget has become a bit of a slush fund. DoD, for its part, is beginning to shift some of the OCO-type requests into the general budget.
The OCO Budget also has requests for $5 Billion for the Counterterrisom Partnership Fund (CTPF) with $4 billion for DoD and $1 billion to the Department of State. There’s also the European Reassurance Initiative with a price tag of $1 billion which mostly goes to DoD. Cappel refers to both as “head scratchers.”

Cautious citizens are worried that a 2010 Department of Defense directive on military support to civilian authorities reinforces the notion that the Obama Administration is preparing to go after political dissidents. Who might that group of dissidents include? Tea Party Members, Veterans, Christians, Pro-lifers and more. The DHS published a list of these potential "extremist" threats back in 2009 (link below). Linc Austin breaks it all down in a powerful report on the directive.
Douglas Dietrich is the son of a retired U.S. Navy Sailor.

Wendy Jordan, Senior analyst for Taxpayers for Common Sense, talks “turkey” about the F-35 in her new report, “The Unaffordable F-35.” The report comes completely from unclassified, open sources. Jordan emphasizes that the report examines the F-35 project from the perspective of taxpayers. The report doesn’t get into the capabilities or technology of the project, but rather if it is a logical expenditure from a taxpayer’s perspective.
Topic for the show: Are we run by alphabet soup organizations (NSA, CIA, FBI, DHS, DOD)? How do these organizations opperate and should the American public question black budgets, seceret testings and documented mind control? Why would the push be for Australian style gun control and what does it mean?
