    Hate to tell you this but it is not up to me to disprove your BS claims. You need to prove your supposed facts.
    This should be fun seeing what nut job website you use for your proof.

    I could go ahead and research every claim made in the "article", but I'm not going to do that because a.) I don't have the time and b.) if you want me to read something and take you seriously I expect you to put in the leg work establishing some kind of credibility.

    This thing has all the inherent credibility of something found via an unknown source on the Internet, which is to say, none.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    So let me get this straight. I am supposed to spend my time disproving every claim you and the CT crackpots dream up. No I don't think so. You make the claim you need to back it up. That's how these things work.

    I simply posted a HISTORY of CIA atrocities. No theories involved.

    The following timeline describes just a few of the hundreds of atrocities and crimes committed by the CIA. (1)CIA operations follow the same recurring script. First, American business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers and the environment. So, on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition. First it identifies right-wing groups within the country (usually the military), and offers them a deal: "We'll put you in power if you maintain a favorable business climate for us." The Agency then hires, trains and works with them to overthrow the existing government (usually a democracy). It uses every trick in the book: propaganda, stuffed ballot boxes, purchased elections, extortion, blackmail, sexual intrigue, false stories about opponents in the local media, infiltration and disruption of opposing political parties, kidnapping, beating, torture, intimidation, economic sabotage, death squads and even assassination. These efforts culminate in a military coup, which installs a right-wing dictator. The CIA trains the dictator’s security apparatus to crack down on the traditional enemies of big business, using interrogation, torture and murder. The victims are said to be "communists," but almost always they are just peasants, liberals, moderates, labor union leaders, political opponents and advocates of free speech and democracy. Widespread human rights abuses follow.
    This scenario has been repeated so many times that the CIA actually teaches it in a special school, the notorious "School of the Americas." (It opened in Panama but later moved to Fort Benning, Georgia.) Critics have nicknamed it the "School of the Dictators" and "School of the Assassins." Here, the CIA trains Latin American military officers how to conduct coups, including the use of interrogation, torture and murder.

    The Association for Responsible Dissent estimates that by 1987, 6 million people had died as a result of CIA covert operations. (2) Former State Department official William Blum correctly calls this an "American Holocaus

    A Timeline of CIA Atrocities

    Read the entire article

    It doesn't read like torture is a recent CIA policy, but an enduring policy.

    There doesn't seem to be much control over CIA activities.

    Do we need the CIA?

    Is the CIA involved in Economic Sabotage by manipulating markets?

    Does the CIA work for the people or CORPORATE America?

    Is it OK for the CIA to lie to Congress?

    Is it OK for the CIA to infiltrate our "FREE PRESS?"(sarcasm, you get what you pay for)

    Should the CIA be abolished? The Poll Question.
    You are the best at finding obscure websites that talk about what you want to! Congrats, I wouldn't even be able to find these sites even if I tried. Good food for thought, but it's hardly a reasonable request or seriously being discussed. For the record I voted no.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    No it is a made up CT version of the history of the CIA.

    The CIA publicly admitted to drug dealing (cocaine) in Los Angeles.
    The CIA publicly admitted to arms sales to Iran to fund weapons sale to Contras (Drug dealers) in Nicaragua.
    The author was kind enough to omit such things in the timeline. I think he was corrupted by the CIA to
    edit the real evil from the timeline, eh?
