CIA Failures

New report released because of the insistence of Congress . 

Accused of failing to address a “systemic breakdown” in the way suspected terrorists were being tracked, the report said CIA top brass “did not discharge their responsibilities in a satisfactory manner“.

Sadly, I am not surprised.  The CIA has become politicized.  Between Carter and Clinton, the administrations of both former presidents weakened the agency’s operational strenghts and fostered a back biting Washington-centered bureaucracy more interested in their careers than in protecting the country. 

Naturally, the linked article (the UK’s Channel 4) includes the obligatory closing snide anti-Bush comment despite the “failures” occuring during the Clinton administration.
