'Homeland security' has received $791 billion since 9/11 01 Mar 2013 In addition to the funds pouring  into the Bush-founded Department of Homeland Security, Congress has allocated vast sums for "homeland  security" expenditures in other departments, most notably at the  Pentagon. In fact, according to new investigation from the Nation Institute's Tomdispatch, $791 billion dollars in federal  funding have gone to homeland security, both within and without the  department… This is the state of affairs which led the Washington Post's Dana Priest and William A. Arkin, in their landmark investigative report on "Top Secret America," to write that "the system put in place to keep the United States safe  is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to determine."
