96. I don't like the word "rogue" in this context.
My perception is that there are two parts to the CIA:

A group of people who gather intelligence vital to American interests (see Valerie Plame Wilson).

A group of assassins who smuggle drugs, working for private interests, mainly corporate (see BFEE).

Jimmy Carter went against this second group. They in turn supplied weapons to
Iran, possibly starting before the 1980 election, reportedly to use the hostages as pawns in that election. At least they didn't assassinate Carter.
