The following is the best concise argument I have read for abolishing the CIA, far better than a similar article I had intended to write. The author analyses the dark history of the CIA, for the most part avoiding falling into the trap of making unverifiable statements while mentioning credible claims of incredible actions that have some evidence to back them up.
My only serious complaint about this article is that like many people who have steeped themselves in the realities of the descent of the United States into fascism, he takes a gratuitous swipe at Kennedy. While admitting that JFK was "a work in progress," he minimizes the significance of what he tried to do to end the Cold War. I suggest that anyone who wants to make that claim needs to be prepared to rebut the excellent arguments presented in James Douglass' JFK and the Unspeakable, and consider how many would have dared to attempt what he did knowing that the CIA was more likely than not to murder him as a result.
