I put up a billboard during the 2022 Democratic primary that said, “Abolish the CIA.” Why? Because it’s the worst terrorist organization in the world today. Ever since the CIA was founded in 1947 it has gotten us into one illegal, immoral war after another. The CIA has tortured many prisoners, for example at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, and has trained thousands of foreign torturers who work for countries allied to Washington.
The CIA’s so-called “intelligence” is almost always wrong. CIA officials are frequently caught lying to Congress and the American people. The CIA also smuggles addictive drugs like heroin and cocaine into America and profits from the drug trade. The opiate addiction that has plagued Kentucky is not Kentucky’s fault; it was inflicted upon us by the CIA. The CIA was almost certainly involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (D) in 1963. We have 16 other agencies that gather intelligence on what other countries are doing, and the CIA has the worst record among these members of America’s “Intelligence Community.” Let’s save billions of dollars every year and end the CIA’s reign of terror all over the world. Abolishing the CIA and ending all of our immoral, illegal wars is the simplest way to make our country more secure, not less.
