The CIA has failed

June 15, 2007

Re "U.S. relies on Sudan despite condemning it," June 11

It is appalling to read the justification for U.S. reliance on Sudanese spies provided by a former CIA official: "There's not much that blond-haired, blue-eyed case officers from the United States can do in the entire Middle East, and there's nothing they can do in Iraq." Maybe the real reason the CIA supposedly needs to rely on the genocidal government of Sudan is that it is blind or possibly racist. Only a blind person could conclude that America's population, made up of immigrants from all over the world, is mostly blond-haired and blue-eyed, and it is a racist organization that would hire only blond-haired and blue-eyed Americans. That the CIA has failed America has been clear since the weapons-of-mass-destruction debacle, which led us into war. Perhaps the most demeaning measure of its failure is that the U.S. is now bartering what is probably worthless information for the lives of thousands of civilians in Darfur.
