Does anybody remember 'Three Days of the Condor'?

I just watched this movie again for maybe the twentieth time and it forced a sudden realization about the IC that the writers of the movie then may have known. We all know how the CIA has intervened and subverted fledgling democracy's where the ROA is perceived, in their thought, as a plus for American business entities. Is this administration so corrupt that Russian influence via blackmail and moles they have fostered in this administration are actually in control but are failing with their prime objective of dividing and then eventually conquering at this moment? What is their long term goal and who will be targeted for silencing when the shit eventually hits the fan because of Putins reliance on those tactics. Is POTUS and America in danger of another November 22, 1963 attack not from within like I believe happened then but from our arch enemy at that time? Random thoughts because of Rum and Coke, and a great movie!

2. Yeah, Redford is a fave of mine!

Him and Faye were great in this movie IMO. 20 years ago I was a scotch theorist, times and tastes change.

3. "...doomed to repeat it."

I don't mind repeating "Three Days of the Condor." History, OTOH, is another matter.

6. History: JFK was neither first (duh) nor last "in danger": Ford (twice) and RR were shot at; not to

 

mention RFK and George Wallace.

And then there were the assassinated national figures such as Rev. MLK, Jr., Malcolm X, Medgar Evers.

The small-plane crashes of Ted Kennedy, Paul Wellstone, JFK, Jr.

Finally, there was the attempted overthrow of Bill Clinton (some would add the forced resignation of Nixon here).

So yes, simply by virtue of being POTUS, our Chief Executive is endangered.

7. I Sure Do

Great movie and closer to some truths that are despicable.

8. I saw it a few months ago. Scary.

Will never not check the shoes of a postal delivery person. When the Faye Dunaway character has a humping event with her kidnapper, I thought at first it was inconceivable, but then remembered it was Robert Redford and not an actual weird person so I could do the suspension of disbelief and think, who wouldn't sleep with Robert Redford?, knock yourself out.
