Abolish the CIA!

There’s an old Polish joke. A Polish man is asked, “If Poland was attacked by both Germany and Russia simultaneously who should the Polish army attack first?” “Russia.” “Why Russia first?” “Business before pleasure.” [I may be remembering this backwards… But you get the idea.]

In the current attempt by neocons like Richard Perle to place blame which largely belongs on them on the CIA, I feel like that Polish man. Who should go down first? The CIA or the Neocons? Which is business, which is pleasure? Whatever the case, Chalmers Johnson says “Improve the CIA? Better to abolish it” (thanks FFF)
