The CIA doesn't have to succed all the time...what does? You or I will never know...that's at least a part of their job they do better than most.
If I had told you in 1967 that I felt strongly that Johnson lied about the Gulf of Tonkin, you would have asked for proof...and stopped there. If I'd said Nixon was bugging his own people and paying people to break into the odffices of the opposition and plant incriminating letter and other things, you'd have said I was paranoid...if I told you that Kuwaiti princess was really an actress and there were no babies toseed out of incubators you'd have said I was a cynic projecting my own paranoia on the world. Luckily we have proof...for at least those...so you can't call me names...but if I told you there were no WMD's in Iraq and I told you the United States has been pushing and pushing Muslims for years now...waiting and hoping for a counter-attack...and if I told you they knew damn well what was coming...that it had been part of the overall plan...and if I told you the United States would go kill Afghanis and then kill Iraqis..without once proving a thing about Al Qaida or bothered with any links...you'd have said and I quote, "the US is not that powerful"
I'm glad I was wrong.
