Rooting for the CIA???

We've indeed entered Wonderland when I find myself rooting for the CIA. Although I expressed support for the "outing" of Victoria Plame on the principle that all CIA agents ought to be outed to keep them from overthrowing governments and whatever else they do to earn their pension, I find this story disturbing.

The move is to put all of CIA under the direct control of the Executive Branch. Discussion is still continuing as to whether or not they should actually call it the Gestapo.

This, in political science, is called a REALLY BAD THING. With moves to give CIA authority to make arrests within the United States, this clearly shows where we are heading.

May ve see your papers, please?
