Remember when the Orange Fascist was openly doubting the CIA's work, and all manner of folks here were up in arms? Maybe, in his mentally deranged way, the Dotard was telling us something of importance...

This was inevitable when it became okay for the GOP to name active CIA spies.

The CIA is one of the shadiest, most corrupt, destructive agencies in human history. It's a good start. How do we lose the rest?

The leak was in the White House.

America fired the leak but the damage has already been done.

And he is probably still leaking all over.

After all I heard that leaking is a favorite pastime of der Grabbenfurher.

Sometimes there are things beyond our control but there are also occasions of sloppiness and neglect and people in senior positions are never held responsible."

"The CIA is one of the shadiest, most corrupt, destructive agencies in human history. It's a good start. How do we lose the rest?"

The CIA didn't cause us to invade Iraq or Aghanistan. Republican politicans did that because "war time president have more power and I will use that power to privatize Social Security."
Understand one basic thing, the CIA obeys the commands of the President. Don't blame them because you elected an incompetent ---- for a President wh wanted a war for his own personal reasons. In Afghanistan they told the President they could go in an get Osama Bin Laden but Bush preferred an invasion and a war, as he also did in Iraq. Don't blame them for his crazy decisions; blame him. I do, I always will. G.W. Bush should be in prison right this minute. Instead, that mass murderer is painting pretty little pictures in Dallas.
1,000,000 Iraqis died because of his need to be a wartime President because 'wartime presidents have more power." That total piece of filth told us what he was going to do before he evwer stole the elction in 2000.

"The CIA didn't cause us to invade Iraq or Afghanistan. "

I disagree. A politician will do what he or she is told to do because the CIA (and other powerful foreign intelligence entities) have enough dirt on them to remove them from office if they don't.

Example: "Invade Iraq or our operatives will turn over your honey pot and see what oozes out."

So, then you are basically saying our CIA can threaten the life of the President and not be subservient to his orders. You need to substantiate such a claim, I ,honestly, do not believe it. Perhaps I am naive but I do still believe the CIA is a loyal arm of our government and that they do obey the orders from higher authorities especially including the President. To think they are a rogue operation with no control from above is a scary thought.

Honestly, I think the CIA would have been too smart to advise invasion of either nation, they could have accomplished the goals they thought necessary without invasion. I believe they offered to do exactly that in Afghanistan in regards to Al Quaeda and Osama Bin Laden, our President rejected the idea because he preferred a full out war.
