Abolish the CIA

Former President Harry Truman said he'd wanted to create the Central Intelligence Agency for the same reason that George W. Bush said he'd wanted to create the director of national intelligence, in order to have a single agency reconcile conflicting information from various other agencies.

"I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations," wrote Truman, who wanted the CIA restricted to "intelligence."

We've now had 70 years of government overthrows, election interference, arming of terrorists, kidnapping, murder, torture, lies to justify wars, bribery of foreign officials, cyber-attacks, and other sorts of "peacetime cloak and dagger," plus open warfare waged by this unaccountable agency including through the use of drones.

With vast sums of unaccounted-for money, much of it generated by off-the-books proprietary companies and illegal activities like drug smuggling, the CIA spreads corruption around the world. This corruption undermines the U.S. government and the rule of law. CIA attacks on foreign governments and peoples backfire against the United States time and time again.

We've just learned that the CIA has been illegally keeping secret and exploiting weaknesses in U.S. companies' technology, hiding flaws from Apple, Google, and all of their customers.

Please add your name to this petition to Congress:

We urge you to abolish the Central Intelligence Agency.
