The CIA is not known for its intelligence.



Agreed, they've come to be known for lack of oversight, being involved in corruption, being involved in drug production and trafficking, overthrowing democraically elected governments, installing despots, grabbing people from their home countries and torturing them in absolutely vile ways, and more.

The 3 letters 'CIA' now strike fear into the hearts of innocent people across the globe.


I would say disgust rather than fear, just another entitled bunch of aholes who think they can do whatever they want all around the globe and they actually have means to do so.

but then comes fleeting moment of satisfaction when some of them are shot, kidnapped etc... yeah, that's how despised they are


> just another entitled bunch of aholes who think they can do whatever they want all around the globe and they actually have means to do so

I think that understates things a bit - I'm not aware of any other group in history that has freely wrought global havoc for so long, torturing, killing, trafficking in drugs, destroying lives, destroying whole nations...

Honestly, they are terrifying.


Yeah. I wonder if there's a way to tally up their death toll... it's possible it'd be in the millions.


I don't think disgust is the right word what you will feel if they put your name on some kill list.
