WASHINGTON — The US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released the base budget figure requested for US intelligence programs Thursday, with a request for $45.6 billion as part of the presidentís 2015 budget.

The details of where that money would be spent are not released to the public, but the figure represents a 5 percent decline from a 2014 request of $48.2 billion.

In a press release, ODNI noted that the figure does not include overseas contingency operations funding. A small trickle of details concerning a couple of unclassified programs will likely be released in the coming weeks. ■
