"With enactment of the FY2008 Defense Department Appropriations Act (H.R. 3222/P.L.110-116) on November 13, 2007, Congress has approved a total of about $627 billion for military operations, base security, reconstruction, foreign aid, embassy costs, and veterans' health care for the three operations initiated since the 9/11 attacks: Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) Afghanistan and other counter terror operations; Operation Noble Eagle (ONE), providing enhanced security at military bases; and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). […] In October 2007, the Congressional Budget Office projected that war costs for the next 10 years might total an additional $570 billion if troop levels fell to 30,000 by 2010, or $1.1 trillion if troop levels fell to 75,000 by about 2013. Under these illustrative scenarios, CBO projects hat funding for Iraq, Afghanistan and the GWOT could reach from about $1.2 trillion and $1.7 trillion for FY2001-FY2017. This report will be updated as warranted."
