WASHINGTON (CNN) - Democratic leaders in Congress released a report Tuesday where they estimated the total costs of the country's military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The report estimates the total cost of the war on terror– including what Democrats call the war's "hidden costs" - at $1.6 trillion.
This is twice what President Bush has requested from Congress to fund operations in Iraq and Afghanistan but far less than the $50 billion the Bush administration initially estimated for the Iraq war in 2003.
