Ron Paul: CIA needs to “taken out”
Ron Paul: After ‘CIA coup,’ agency ‘runs military’
US House Rep. Ron Paul says the CIA has has in effect carried out a “coup” against the US government, and the intelligence agency needs to be “taken out.”
Speaking to an audience of like-minded libertarians at a Campaign for Liberty regional conference in Atlanta this past weekend, the Texas Republican said:
There’s been a coup, have you heard? It’s the CIA coup. The CIA runs everything, they run the military. They’re the ones who are over there lobbing missiles and bombs on countries. … And of course the CIA is every bit as secretive as the Federal Reserve. … And yet think of the harm they have done since they were established [after] World War II. They are a government unto themselves. They’re in businesses, in drug businesses, they take out dictators … We need to take out the CIA.</em>
Strong words. I seem to remember someone else saying something similar:
“to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.”
What happened to that guy?
Oh yeah. The CIA killed him.
