Good Comment, Dan. The CIA's assumed mantle of "Plausible Deniability" was interpreted by Dulles as license to lie through his teeth. Thus the CIA has long been a loose canon, and the FBI under Hoover, even longer. Presidents are just puppets, but if they attempt to assert any control, the puppet masters will pull their strings accordingly. I know this and I am not an American. There are thousands of books written by many brave men and women testifying to this simple truth. To not be aware requires wilful ignorance. Trumps lies are amateurish and of little consequence compared to the whoppers which surround the sinking of the Maine, Lusitania, Zimmerman, Business Coup, Pearl Harbour, JFK, MLK, RFK, Operations Northwoods, Cyanide, Phoenix, Gulf of Tonkin, 9/11....and thats only the few we know about!
