I think the CIA should be abolished.
If you look at the CIA's astonishingly bad intelligence to the President and the U.S. government on the Iraq matter, throw in the whole Valerie Plame thing which looks more and more like a CIA operation against the duly elected President of the U.S., and lay on top of that story after story of general CIA incompetence and you realize that Jack Ryan is very, very much a fictional character.
Shut the CIA down, and round up all of those former "Able Danger" military intelligence types and tell them that it's their show now.
Michael Barone[*1] agrees with me.
