I understand because of their practices that many at DU believe the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is the most evil entity on the planet: but it is not true.
I have a good friend that "retired" from the CIA - if that is possible - who is an honorable and forthright individual. I lived at his safe houses multiple times over the years, when things began to get hot.
While the CIA is capable of nearly anything, so are other agencies, like the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National Security Agency (NSA) to name a few.
The CIA isn't that bad. All they do is launch a few drones, which cause collateral damage, finance monstrous drug lords in Afghanistan and stir up revaluations, using groups like the Mouja Hadeen. Other than that, they are fairly sweet.
The FBI is fully capable of assassinating presidents, like Kennedy and civil rights leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King and then blaming the atrocities on the CIA; but in all fairness the CIA might have helped them transport and train Lee Harvey Oswald.
Admittedly, I have no real evidence linking the FBI, or for that matter, any other agency with the light-hearted, allegations I make in this post.
Lots of this crap is funny to me, though; and I like keeping these feds stirred up, so they have something to do online that makes them feel important.
After I stirred up some crap - in person - at an anti-war rally with Code Pink, DHS began to follow me around with their color-coded vehicles, until someone wrote a song called I'm Giving All My Secrets Away and they had to repaint their cars! LOL
Hell, the damn NSA continues to harass the hell out of me online; and they claim that I hide code in my online activity. But that claim is ludecrous.
Still all these agencies pale in comparison to a far more dangerous group that all other federal agencies fall in line to become the recipient of their next, exciting, new development.
That group is called Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). They brought us wondrous inventions, like Agent Orange. It was a defoliant used in Vietnam, which made plants grow at a phenomenal rate, mutate, turn gray, melt and die. It also seared the paint off of aircraft as aircrew members dispersed it by hand, while officers assured them; "Don't worry; it won't harm humans!" Of course, all the people who had direct contact with the compound subsequently died of rare cancers.
This fine agency, or its predecessor by another name, employed NAZIS to build atomic weaponry during the Manhattan Project. During a test to see how a nuclear blast affected humans, they lined up loyal, dedicated, Navy personnel on a ship to watch a spectacular mushroom cloud blossom on a not so distant horizon. Needless to say, the sailors got a fairly severe "sunburn" and subsequently died.
I keep that agencies attention focused on me by coming up with ideas like Fast Attack Nuclear Gliding Satellites FANGS). The one I designed is primarily plastic, except for the metal fuselage and plutonium core. It is stealthy since it radically changes wing configuration and shape upon re-entry, because as it heats up, rubber-like wing joints unfold to slow the decent. Computerized systems can slightly alter wing configuration and dramatically alter its course. It is a bit like a shape-changing paper airplane that goes supersonic when necessary. It can silently glide in low for subtle air strikes. Being nuclear powered, it can blow the hell out of a target with deadly bursts of radiation.
Anyhow, after all my inventiveness, click on the link and read about the piece of crap DARPA produced:
