The war in Afghanistan has cost the United States nearly $1 trillion, according to a report published Monday.

The calculation was by the Financial Times and independent researchers. They found that the war has cost nearly $1 trillion, and that most of that was spent under President Obama, who escalated the number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan upon taking office.

The war began following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

To put the total in perspective, Congress just passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill funding most of the federal government for the rest of the fiscal year.

The war in Iraq, by contrast, cost the U.S. $1.7 trillion, according to a Costs of War Project conducted by Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies.
