My answer to How much of the U.S. defense budget is spent on supporting allies?

Answer by Ken Larson:

The Washington Post recently published an exceptional article that admirably answers your question:

“WASHINGTON POST”

“In the breakdown we have laid out where the $42.4 billion will go in 2017.

The money comes from the State and Defense departments and a slew of other agencies.

But it would be wrong to think that “security assistance” comes entirely from the DoD. Security assistance is a broader term than so-called military aid because this financial support is often extended to other types of security forces such as anti-narcotic or trafficking units.”
