Excluding the cost of loss of life - which can't really be counted in terms of dollars - a Time article (http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1868367,00.html) from late last year attributes the total spent on Bush's War at over one trillion... and growing. The article states;

The trillion-dollare figure does not, for example, include long-term health care for veterans, thousands of whom have suffered crippling wounds, or the interest payments on the money borrowed by the Federal Government to fund the war.
