What you need to know about the CIA – The intelligence community – Ep 13.0
America has many three letter agencies that perform a variety of tasks. Law enforcement, tax collection, firearms investigations, customs and border security, and so forth. Today, Danny and I discuss our intelligence community, and when we say ‘intelligence community, we mean the SEVENTEEN intelligence agencies that perform intelligence missions of all sorts. Somehow, we have seventeen of them. But what does the public know about their ongoing mission? How does their presence on college campuses and film sets impact the views of the military for the average American? What role has torture played in the intelligence community and how does it affect the intelligence we receive, seventeen years after 9/11? With this is mind, Danny and I present our breakdown of the intelligence community. Enjoy!!!
00:40 – The intelligence community
The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.
