I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Obama To Dissolve the CIA

Eric Holder’s decision to investigate the CIA torture issue combined with the President’s newly created department to coordinate terrorist investigations from the Whitehouse in conjunction with the FBI is the first step toward dissolving the CIA. The prosecution of CIA personnel for torture and the use of the FBI to conduct investigations of foreign agents combine to discourage the CIA to conduct interrogations and gives the FBI authority in the area of foreign operations, heretofore the domain of the CIA. It is not a surprise that the President and his friends would like to incapacitate the CIA. I just find it hard to believe the Congress will let them get away with it. It will take the FBI at least two decades to establish the type of world-wide intelligence network needed to protect our country from foreign enemies. Holder is personally responsible for the pardon for six FLAN terrorists in the last days of the Clinton Presidency. His behavior as Attorney General has been hateful and racist and if I may say so anti-American. He no more loves America than Osama Bin Laden, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan or yes, Barack Obama. The CIA is our best defense against foreign enemies and it is about to be castrated by a President who will be putting us a great risk and giving our enemies a great advantage.
