It's time to abolish the CIA

The CIA should be abolished. After a trial run of 67 years, the CIA has proven a sorcerer's apprentice. The director and his subordinates have became insufferably arrogant Platonic Guardians hiding behind secrecy in the belief that the rest of us are too stupid or naive to judge what risks to accept to preserve liberty and the rule of law.
