From JFK to torture, the CIA obstructs accountability

From Bryan Bender of the The Boston Globe:

“The CIA has a long history of blocking congressional oversight of its activities. ‘I think there is a pattern,’ said John Prados, a senior fellow at the National Security Archive at George Washington University and author of ‘The Family Jewels: The CIA, Secrecy, and Presidential Power.'”

    1. Not to mention the fact that from Wernher von Braun, all the way down to the lowly technicians, German rocket specialists built the V-2s that were used to kill innocent civilians in London.

      A few years later, those very German scientists and engineers took us to the moon.

      BTW: I highly recommend the Science Channel and the Military Channel, as both have JFK-related material.

      1. Thanks for the links, Ramon. I will check these out.

        Of course, we can throw in the Gary Webb saga to a long list of CIA travesties: Key Figures In CIA-Crack Cocaine Scandal Begin To Come Forward via @HuffPostPol
