"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

emasculating the CIA « Previous | |Next »
May 16, 2006

Sidney Blumenthal has a fine article at Salon.com on the marginalisation of the CIA and the concentration of power and intelligence gatheing in the Penatgon under Donald Rumsfeld. Blumenthal says:

Acting on the president's charge, Goss in effect purged the CIA.....No president has ever before ruined an agency at the heart of national security out of pique and vengeance. The manipulation of intelligence by political leadership demands ever tightened control. But political purges provide only temporary relief from the widening crisis of policy failure.

Some are calling it an intelligence reorganization but the reorganization represents the militarization of intelligence.
