Guarding the Guards at the CIA

Guarding the Guards at the CIA
May 22, 2017
By George Friedman

It’s a tough question for a democracy to answer. Trust is built on the tacit agreement that the “bad things” an agency does are good for the country. If the public believes that that is no longer the case – if it believes the agency is acting out of self-interest and not national interest – then the agreement is broken. The intelligence agency is seen as an impediment of the right to national self-determination, a means for the ends of the few

I am most disturbed by the FBI & the CIA dabbling in our internal politics.

When agencies start playing kingmaker everything goes to hell.

There is no real chance of a military coup in the USA, but the safeguards on Federal agencies is less defined.
