    It's not so much that the CIA and Wall Street are somehow in cohoots together...more like, people of great power, prestige, or influence...tend to travel in the same circles. Birds of a feather and all that jazz.

    Moneyed interests absolutely play a large role in politics, of course. So in a way, there is a connection. But that same connection exists for all branches of government.

    Poor and middle class people tend to move in the same circles also and each have political groups to whom they are loyal. In fact the politicians tend to pay more attention to these groups during election time that anyone else. Of course after the election it can change.

    Oh I'm not in denial--maybe I'm being gullible but I think you were indeed with the Agency.

    Whether you were or not really doesn't matter. Too many books and articles have been written about the revolving door between the Agency & Wall Street. One need not be a rocket scientist to understand how it works. I read the book about Nugan-Hand a very long time ago.

    There's no doubt some senior personnel go back and forth, but there simply isn't the kind of sinister conspiring in which you seem to believe.

    Not surprised.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
