Please tell me now how CBO scoring isn't credible. We can go lots of fun places with that.
As stated right there on the page, the CBO is only counting DoD funds and training funds/aid, which aren't even close to the amount of money actually spent.

'Between September 2001 and October 2012, lawmakers have appropriated about $1.4 trillion (including an estimated $127 billion for fiscal year 2012) for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and for other war-related activities. Of that funding, about $1.25 trillion has gone to the Department of Defense, with nearly $150 billion provided for training indigenous security forces and for diplomatic relations and foreign aid for Iraq and Afghanistan. "
