It is so much worse than you know ... unless you have read Robert Baer's books that is. It isn't really the fault of the CIA although anyone in management within that org should hang their head in shame. The CIA was purposely gutted starting with Reagan. Bush Sr was a major culprit. Clinton finished the job. The idea was do NOTHING that might damage the House of Saud. Just follow the money.
The fact that we lost all intelligence gathering ability throughout Central Asia was just the dominoe affect.

That is as big a load of crap as has been posted here in a while. Concerns about Saudi had nothing to do with the reduction of intelligence capability and it did NOT start with Reagan. Your historical knowledge is a bit sketchy to say the least.

(America's Enemies foreign and domestic agree: Bush must be destroyed.)
