    It really is that simple. The CIA is directly and indirectly responsible for nearly every threat we have faced for more than two decades. Their answer is always some clever plan that arms someone else to fight the enemy we created.

    Osama bin Laden is of course one of the best known failures of the CIA. Some say yes, others say no to the question about if we armed and supported him during the Afghanistan War of the 1980’s. Either way, he fought on the side we did support. So if we did support him and his group, we helped him perfect his craft. If we didn’t support him, while supporting his rivals, then we certainly alienated him and helped feed his animosity.

    But that was then and this is now right? Well yes, and we’re still doing the same stupid shit, pretending that we are clever. Exclusive: Tracing ISIS’ Weapons Supply Chain—Back to the US

    Yep, we supplied ISIS with a hell of a lot of munitions and weapons. Thanks CIA for creating another enemy for us to fight.

    Frankly, we would be better off abolishing the CIA once and for all. Their successes lead to later disasters. Their failures lead to more immediate disaster. Either way, the road leads directly to disaster.

    It goes back way more than 20 years. Look at Iran. The CIA manufactures the overthrow of the government and put in the Shah. He is a vicious and brutal dictators at the start. As time goes on he mellows and Iran actually moves out of 3rd world status and is part of the industrialized world. The son of the Shah is educated in the US and would have been nothing like his father in the early days. So what does the CIA do, it allows (or according to some orchestrated) the overthrow of the Shah by radical Islamist who turn the country back into a shit hole.

    Then we arm Saddam to fight against Iran!

    If this shit happened in a movie people would walk out due to it being too unrealistic.

    We have for a very long time been our own worst enemy

    So your contention is that by arming terrorists, we are hurting Putin? By any chance, do you work at the CIA? I only ask because that kind of blatant stupidity is exactly the kind of insane bullshit that they claim is a victory.

    That's what happens when we undermine the constitution, and refuse to pick up arms to overthrow corrupt regimes.

    The overthrow of the democratically elected government of Chile, Guatemala, Congo, South Vietnam. The list goes on and on. Yet, we keep on keeping on, because. Who the fuck knows why. Apparently we just can’t stand for people to choose their own leaders.
