It's a big surprise to me that the costs are so high.

It's pretty horrible because there are so many good things that money could've gone towards - constructive things, whether they are at home or abroad.

It could've been spent on education or health care. Instead it's gone towards killing people.

$20,000 per family is a lot of money.
