CIA releases papers that set off scandal

Sure why not? Everyone else is having scandal after scandal, let's let them all loose right now.

The CIA released hundreds of pages of internal reports Tuesday on assassination plots, secret drug testing and spying on Americans that triggered a scandal in the mid-1970s.

So what is this supposed to mean. The CIA releases a ton of papers documenting misconduct over thirty years ago and we're supposed to think, "Oh, since they're admitting it now, they must not do anything like that anymore."? The US government greatly underestimates the intelligence of its population. Well, acutally, now that I think about it, perhaps it doesn't. There are some really, really stupid people in this country.

The documents detail assassination plots against foreign leaders such as Fidel Castro, the testing of mind-altering drugs like LSD on unwitting citizens, wiretapping of U.S. journalists, spying on civil rights and anti-Vietnam war protesters, opening of mail between the United States and the Soviet Union and China and break-ins at the homes of ex-CIA employees and others.

I'm not surprised. Anyone who thought the CIA walked the line on the legal sign is probably too busy trying to get their life savings back from a phone scam to read this article. And by the way I encourage anyone in the US who fails a drug test from now on to blame the CIA.
