Dismantle both of them, root, branch, and bough.
The FBI and the CIA have been involved in numerous scandals and instances of corruption over the last 70 years. These scandals have included illegal surveillance, wiretapping, blackmail, and other tactics aimed at social movements, as well as unethical experiments, failed operations, and human rights abuses. These scandals have not only damaged the reputation of these agencies, but also eroded public trust in the government as a whole.
It is important to hold these agencies accountable for their actions and to demand transparency and oversight in their operations. The FBI and CIA are necessary for protecting national security, but they must do so within the bounds of the law and without violating the rights of citizens or engaging in unethical practices.
In recent years, there have been efforts to reform these agencies and improve their accountability, including the implementation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and the creation of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB). However, more needs to be done to address the root causes of corruption and scandal within these agencies.
Ultimately, the FBI and CIA must work to rebuild public trust and demonstrate their commitment to upholding the law and protecting the rights of citizens. This will require a concerted effort to address past wrongs, implement reforms, and foster a culture of accountability and transparency within these agencies. Only then can the FBI and CIA truly fulfill their vital role in safeguarding national security while upholding the principles of democracy and justice.
A “vital role” that, strangely enough, is mentioned nowhere in the US Constitution, not even once. As such, “more” will always “need to be done,” until such time as the American escutcheon has been cleansed of the stain left upon it by their corruption, fully-witting election-tampering, and general thuggishness.
