The SHamefully Politicized CIA

I've written here before about the arrogance and politicization of the CIA. Here, in today's LA Times, is a valuable piece that points out the wrongheadedness of and the danger springing from having a CIA that does little effectively -- besides play politics.

It seems the only organization that the CIA is capable of running a successful operation against, is our own government.

It's time for the whole thing to be sent to the scrap heap.

And we need to start again, creating an aggressive, capable and savvy intelligence agency for the 21st century.

It is probably impossible to dismantle any bureaucracy. Limit the CIA to open-source intel and leave the covert stuff to the DOD.
