    Getting Rid of the next Government-Funded Program that gives $$$ to Criminals. This program has been doing it for a long time, in fact, they seemingly are so good at it that many times the American people don't find out to years later.

    The program that I am referring to? While the Central Intelligence Agency of course.

    Now now, before you yell "conspiracy theorist" or "bullshit" lets recall the facts. I've seen at least 20 ACORN threads in the last week, and that was over SOME employees being involved in illegal behavior. Now, their funding is going to be cut.

    Yet, this program gets to go on after so many of their actions and funding of criminals?

    Exhibit A: CIA and The Mob

    How the CIA Enlisted the Chicago Mob to Put a Hit on Castro - Chicago magazine - November 2007 - Chicago

    At this point, I would just like to point out that there are plenty of more detailed books out there about the relationship between the CIA and the Mob.

    Exhibit B: The Iran/Contra Affair

    Iran–Contra affair - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Contras, Cocaine, and Covert Operations

    CIA's Challenge in South Central

    Exhibit C: Honduras and the Leftist Dissidents

    CIA activities in Honduras - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Exhibit D: Manuel Noriega

    Manuel Noriega - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And Exhibit E: Operation CHAOS

    Domestic Surveillance: The History of Operation CHAOS

    That's just five examples, though there really isn't anymore needed. To be honest, I made this thread to just point out the hypocrisy of some people and to show the selective targeting of some people.

    Well if you're a Republican who believes what Bush says, it's the CIA fault that we're currently in Iraq since they were the ones who supplied him the false information.

    Is that good enough for you? :eusa_eh:

    There's that.

    Plus, whatever happened to the whole "hold people accountable for their actions." Do we really not just give a fuck anymore that this goes on?

    Well it beats the hell out of your 50 year old scandal. AT least that discussion would have something to do with our current situation.

    Maybe you don't realize it, but things that happen 20-30+ years ago ARE relevant to this current situation.

    Who gave a man and his group not only billions of dollars but TRAINING and weapons to use against the Soviets in the 80's. That SAME TRAINING used against American citizens on 9/11. The man was Osama Bin Laden and that group was the Taliban. The people who gave them these things and training? The CIA.

    The Actions of the CIA in 1953 in Iran is the whole basis of why many Iranians hate us today.

    The CIA overthrew their democratically elected leader in a military coup because he threatened to nationalize British oil. His replacement that the CIA picked was a dictator, who we know as the Shah of Iran, and his brutal police force the SAVAK oppressed the Iranian people for YEARS.

    Or hey, how about Iran/Contra? When the CIA helped secretly give weapons to the Iranians so they can kill the Iraqis while they also gave the Iraqis weapons in secret to kill the Iranians.

    SO as you see, actions from over fifty years ago even are STILL relevant today in many years.
