As long as there's secrecy, there will be suspicion. Isn't the CIA there specifically to break international (and domestic) laws? Who would
prosecute the CIA? Who would stop them from killing the prosecuter? If you go up the chain of command enough, you'll eventually run into the CIA with
no one above them except other CIA agents and workers... there's no one to stop them from doing whatever they please... right? Or am I missing
one thing i have read about is that dureing at least the 60's the cia was playing with "drugs " for differant purposes, from a "truth" syrum, to
something to make castro's beard fall out. i have read and heard many times about a "party house" that the cia used to operate to find out what
effects that differant drugs had on people. it had a small room towords the ceter in which an observer could sit undetected to make notes and film the
l.s.d. was accidently discovered by a scientist who was looking for another benifical drug from bread moulds since that is where penicillen came from.
he accidently dosed himself and "came to" away from his lab with the most interesting thoughts on what he had done. he then paid a kid to follow him
to take notes on what was actualy going on as a comparison for what he percieved to be going on. the cia aperantly tried to use it years later as a
truth syrum. even though it did not work the effects were considered to be of possible use on foren leaders. there for starting reserch such as the
i have also seen a video of a guy giveing a lecture,one thing that stood out was that a picture of a high ranking cia official haveing a cordial
discussion with a high ranking comunist in a comunity setting.
i agree that the cia seems to be above the law. the phraise "who watches the watcher" comes to mind. i wish i could find proff positive or even
negative regaurding the cia's role in many things. but even trying to look ends up as treason. the freedom of information sounds good except for
critical info is blacked out if the document is not missing entirely. the very concept of the cia is indeed to break foren laws that is their mandate
to be able to spy. they are not suppost to work in the us but at the same time they have all the skills to circumvent detection boath abroad and in
the us. just look at the abuse of power from the fbi commited dureing the time that hoover was in charge. could ian flemmig have been trying to warn
us of the inherent dangers of various spy agencys in his fictional works? he was involved within such an organization after all.
also the oss (the cia's predisesor) was activly helping the war effort before the attack on pearl harbour. they provded aircraft and other materials
to the british via canada. for the purpose of training agents. who knows what else they were up to? the very fact something is a secret arouses
suspican. just look at "area 51" and you will see that to be true. how many of these secrets when leaked are found to be treasonus like the contra
affair? canada has it's own "cia" known as cesus not well known but normaly when you hear about them they have been caught at something
underhanded, yet again.
i wish i could remember the names of several books i have read years ago that have to do with the cia, and their part in the drug trade. as well as
other problems they have caused.
