Shocker Alert: The CIA Lied
You have to know the nature of the beast. The CIA is charged with controlling America’s secrets and gathering the secrets of other nations. A Congressional report reveals the CIA lied about its “enhanced interrogation,” i.e. torture, program to the surprise of few. Although this report, in part, works as a shield to protect Legislators from the fallout of the CIA’s unchecked, destructive behavior, it also demonstrates that our elected officials cannot guarantee the CIA is under its control while it certainly creates consequences for the CIA hacking the computer networks of Congress. Political games hypocrisy aside, it also shows how hardliner thinking is dominating the behavior of the Agency to the point officials are conspiring to lie to those overseeing them in order to illegally push their agendas. Consequently, government needs to finally rein in the CIA and the rest of our national security apparatus, because the nature of these beasts prevents them from breaking free of their underhanded, abusive behavior.
