Terminate the CIA, Stop Giving Them Funds, Cease Their ServiceJuly 10, 2009 at 7:00 pm | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment
Seriously, the CIA is constantly shooting America in the foot, and needs to be shut down. Their service does not benefit America, but rather hinders our progress forward. They lie to Congress and to America. They exist within a sphere of blackness and secrecy that is poisoning our, otherwise, open society. They work at the pleasure and command of the President, and has generally been used by presidents to do illegal work presidents would otherwise not be able to do. They sow chaos around the world because presidents think sowing chaos does America a service.
For instance, President Eisenhower wanted to overthrow the democratically elected government of Iran in 1953. But overt action would have been full scale war, lots of people dead, and so on. But give that action to a covert op with little accountability, well, you’ve got your escape. Doesn’t matter that that action ends up coming to bite us in the ass decades later. Sow chaos in Cambodia. Sow chaos in Indonesia. Sow chaos in Latin America. Sow chaos in the Middle East. Suddenly, America has to be overtly in more places than America needs to. And all because of the CIA.
It’s time to end their disservice. Close that book. Send them packing with the dodo bird on the beaches of extinction.
