CIA's Creator Came to Regret It ... Said the CIA Was a "Government All Its Own" Which Was Destroying Democracy

George Washington's picture

President Truman created the CIA.

He explained that it was solely an attempt to consolidate intelligence from many different intelligence agencies (page 285):

I needed … the President needed at that time a central organization that would bring all the various intelligence reports we were getting in those days, and there must have been a dozen of them, maybe more, bring them all into one organization so that the President would get one report on what was going on in various parts of the world. Now that made sense, and that's why I went ahead and set up what they called the Central Intelligence Agency.

But in the 1970s, he told his biographer, Merle Miller (page 285):

I think [creation of the CIA] was a mistake. And if I'd know what was going to happen, I never would have done it.

 

***

 

Why, they've got an organization over there in Virginia now that is practically the equal of the Pentagon in many ways. And I think I've told you, one Pentagon is one too many.

 

Now, as nearly as I can make out, those fellows in the CIA don't just report on wars and the like, they go out and make their own, and there's nobody to keep track of what they're up to. They spend billions of dollars on stirring up trouble so they'll have something to report on. They've become ... it's become a government all of its own and all secret. They don't have to account to anybody.

 

That's a very dangerous thing in a democratic society, and it's got to be put a stop to. The people have got a right to know what those birds are up to. And if I was back in the White House, people would know. You see, the way a free government works, there's got to be a housecleaning every now and again, and I don't care what branch of the government is involved. Somebody has to keep an eye on things.

 

And when you can't do any housecleaning because everything that goes on is a damn secret, why, then we're on our way to something the Founding Fathers didn't have in mind. Secrecy and a free, democratic government don't mix. And if what happened at the Bay of Pigs doesn't prove that, I don't know what does. You have got to keep an eye on the military at all times, and it doesn't matter whether it's the birds in the Pentagon or the birds in the CIA.

Similarly, President Kennedy said he wanted “to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds”.  But he was assassinated a month later.

Reforming the intelligence agencies is like opening the skull and treating the brain tumor with Mercurochrome (remember that worthless ointment).

Tear them out by the roots and jail all lawbreakers. Any intelligence should be under the military for military purposes. I also am very skeptical of special ops in all branches of service being under the direction of the intelligence DISservices.

The CIA has committed murders and caused deaths worldwide.  This is a crime:  http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/18/I/51/1111

The CIA has "stolen" funds which were not authorized by Congress. 

The CIA's lackeys who assisted or abetted these crimes are Principals (accomplices in Federal Law) subject to identical penalties.

The CIA has meddled in our elections, which has been labelled an act of war.

The CIA has conspired to commit the above crimes.  http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/18/I/19/371

The Trump  Blitz:  On the same day; indict the former heads of the CIA and their internal appointees; declare the CIA "The enemy of the people of the USA; revoke all CIA persons' security clearances; have troops seal Langley.

The US has other intelligence agencies to replace it.

The Devil's Chessboard clearly makes the case that the CIA has been treasonous since the beginning. Read A Mosque in Munich for the historical link with the Muslim Brotherhood. Then in 1953 the CIA's first civilian director Allen Dulles destroyed Iran's democracy and he tasted blood. He liked it so much he went on a rampage destroying democracies throughout the world, including the USA. 

If we could, we should simply with one stroke, pull the plug on the CIA.

CIA= traitors.

CFR=traitors

Glad you mentioned that book.....Mosque in Munich is very important because it shows how CIA and MI6 weaponised Islam against USSR 

This amazon.co.uk book review gives so much background.....

As Robert David Steele states there are 7 al-CIAd'uhs (Private Contractors) , hence the difficulty of reining them in, and so pending a good poppy harvest in Afghanistan and the like the 7 Heads & 10 Horns are a massive drain on/to the Public Purse.

Hence the need to attach themselves to the coats of the MIC-NATO-CFR-FED RES-BIS and Cherry Target Other People's Resources, murdering ten's of thousands on the Ride.

Truman was a Mob-front Freemason fag.

lakecity55's picture

He did protect the Pendergast machine in Missouri.

But, before he was VP, as senator, he ran a good commission ferreting out .gov waste on contracts. Like the Don, he also threatened to punch out a reporter who insulted his daughter.

I've read a couple of good books on Harry, including Merle's. One thing I did not like was his belief in the commie holy grail of "free" health care.

But, all in all, he was way better than Bush 1&2, Billy and Barry. One of his Jewish buddies influenced him to declare Israel a State, against the advice of Marshall, as I recall. That was a bad move.

Thank you Harry for giving the world neo-faux-israhell the fake jew state in Palestine and the CIA. Lotta competition for te worst president, but HArry is a serious contender. That piece of dirt sold out the soul of the nation and the entire world for jew money to get elected. He and Dewey were in a bidding war to out jew the other just to get elected. Now, that total loser has been dead for decades, and totally forgotten as a miserable footnote in history, nuking Japan just to see how the jews' invention would work on a human population, he leaves a legacy that keeps on poisoning the world because of israhell and the CIA, two totally hideous creations of the Truman administration that should be immediately closed down.

Maybe I am all wrong... maybe I have been brain washed... but... this is a sort of condemnation of the jews.

- This might have been all about the Jews in the US Presidential Admin, the US Congress, the US Govt leadership, the US Universities, the US Corporations, the US Banks, the US FIREs... well or even just one one of those industries... after having taken over various industries and government or just Banking of course... central banking being a kind of broker for influence on loans... to politicians after the Bolsheviks might have ruined their businesses...

Well hell... as a you man I might have destroyed businesses or industries... for career... or to please my Rockefeller teachers, right?

Shut down the CIA and all the rest of them. Irremediably corrupted. Cut their budgets and clear them out.

Congress won't do it because they have been compromised by the CIA and are in fear. They are traitors to America.

Need to clean all the corruption out of DC and VA to have a decent government. Will never happen. Has to collapse first.

You can say exactly same thing about the FBI, NSA, TSA, HS, Federal Reserve

The ALL break the Law of the Land, and only care about their own exisance.

But worse than that, hide behind the Law by making it Illegal to disclose the Crimes that these agencies are committing.

This is getting kind of funny! ... I love it.

George Webb is slicing and dicing all of the CIA dirty tricks the agency has going on US soil. Dyncorpse, JTTF, hacking and cracking, brownstone operations, etc. etc. etc. ...... And now, Gulan is getting undressed in public. (I was warned to stay out of that one myself because it would really piss off the CIA.) ..... Next up? .. Chemtrails, I hope. That one has us all in the cross hairs and needs to be addressed. (Listening, Mr President? ... The chems are killing your grandkids too)

Day 137 Part 1 = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AQelhNiEKE

My working theory about George Webb is; He has a big time tap into CeyeA resources and probably CeyeA protection too.

George is the Energizer Terminator Bunny and his target is the CIA.

Go George! Go!

Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip. ... Show the CIA what water torture is really all about, George! ... Day 133, Day 134, Day 135, Day 136.... Hahaha!

Truman signing off on the creation of the Israeli state was also a huge mistake.

Too bad his best friend was Jewish.  He would have never signed it otherwise.

In fact, quoting from Truman's biography (McCullough):

"If Jesus Christ couldn't make these people happy when He was here on earth,

what the hell do they expect from me?"  But he signed it anyway.

cheech_wizard's picture

or this from a 1947 diary...

Truman wrote in a July 21 passage, "The Jews, I find are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[ersons] as long as the Jews get special treatment. Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under dog." 

Standard Disclaimer: Tell me that last line is not the most honest truth you've read today.


GRDguy's picture

James Warburg, son of Federal Reserve founder Paul Warbug,  gained some notice in a February 17, 1950, appearance before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in which he said,

"We shall have world government, whether or not we like it.

The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest."

As much as I respect Truman (I was born and raised in Independence, Missouri),

I think now that he was THEIR patsy. I suspect he never saw it coming.

The founding fathers were aware of the failings of human nature. That their work has warded off the worst of our evil side this long is a blessing. But, nothing beats a good revolution when things get too off kilter.

Nature is a battle between efficiency and diversity. The pendulum always swings to and fro.

Rule one, secrecy is the enemy of freedom.

CIA has trigger armies worldwide.  For example the three Information Technologist Arabs took information from ALL alphabet intelligence agencies and State Department and fed information to Muslim Brotherhood.  There are fusion centers in USA ready to destroy any civilian uprising.  All citizens are profiled.  Hilary Clinton's blacklist has millions on kill list.  These gangs and groups such as La Raza have day jobs are work at night training to overthrow rebel regions and local governments.  Sheriffs are trained from UN narcotrafficing and child sex rings.  They import child soldiers trained to kill on command then make criminal funnels under control of the 'law'  Read about project Phoenix

CIA is self funding as it launders $6trillion through DynCorp.  CIA funds many startup companies worldwide for percentage.  Many CIA storefronts with real business in front to launder their black ops funds.  CIA can legally steal money from accounts using their own tools, using that as pretext to blame targeted scapegoats.  Their software does that automatically

DuneCreature's picture

It wouldn't be quite so bad if the CIA didn't have a strangle hold on the media too. ... You can't even get any information about the sumy-bitches in print or on the tube.

~~ ( The CIA News Agency Isn't Going To Cover This News Story )~~

I guess we'll have to tune into Russia Today to find out what's going on in Wash DC.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ER6rjPFK1Ls

Pretty soon they will have to encrypt the news feeds, I can just feel it in my spooks.

If the CIA wants us to leave them alone they better get out of news crushing business. .......... In your face lies 24/7 doesn't help their PR any at all.

Judging by what gets done in any given 8 year period, the only thing which is not a government on its own is - the government.

CIA, FBI, FED, BANK, JOINT CHIEFS, MEDIA, KNESSET , LOBBIES - all have more influence over policy.

And yet - what did they do after 9/11?  The formed an even larger and more convoluted organization, DHS, because they supposedly "needed at that time a central organization that would bring all the various intelligence reports we were getting in those days, and there must have been a dozen of them, maybe more, bring them all into one organization so that the President would get one report on what was going on in various parts of the world".  Instead of a dozen, now there are what ... 17?
