Truman Was Right About the CIA
Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 13, 2017
Merle Miller: Mr. President, I know that you were responsible as President for setting up the CIA. How do you feel about it now?
Truman: I think it was a mistake. And if I’d know what was going to happen, I never would have done it.
Truman: But it got out of hand. The fella … the one that was in the White House after me never paid any attention to it, and it got out of hand. Why, they’ve got an organization over there in Virginia now that is practically the equal of the Pentagon in many ways. And I think I’ve told you, one Pentagon is one too many.
This is the same guy that had no reservations about nuking a beaten Japan twice just to make a point with Russia.
So when he regrets creating the CIA that is saying something.
Be seeing you
