9/11 security could cost $21 billion

Defending against terrorism won't come cheap. One of the first things the Democratic majority did when they took control of Congress was pass a bill implementing most of the 9/11 Commission's reccomendations. The Congressional Budget Office estimates it'll cost $21 billion over five years.

Rep Peter King (R-NY), the ranking Republican on the Homeland Security Committee, says the report validates his opposition to the plan -- saying it costs too much. (CNN)
