June 7, 2011
As part of its "Cost of War" analysis, NPP has calculated the total cost of the war in Afghanistan. To date, $459.8 billion dollars has been allocated for the war in Afghanistan since 2001 in current, or "then year" dollars. Adjusted for inflation the total is $487.6 billion in constant 2012 dollars. This includes all of the funding that has been requested by the President and appropriated by Congress for the war through the end of the current fiscal year on September 30, 2011.
