The CIA's Flawed Intelligence Service

Why does intelligence have to be gathered by the CIA with its tragic flaw of no accountability?

The fact that the committee found that the responsibility for the Ames affair lies with R. James Woolsey's predecessors indicates that this has been an ongoing problem that will probably continue.

Why not return intelligence gathering to the State Department?

Retire, at full pay, all CIA agents. Use the billions that flow through those agents to foreign double agents to reduce the size of the national debt. The deficit is a far greater danger to our well-being than the loss of disinformation. Barbara M. Fiedler, River Forest, Ill.
