America's Secret Police: Who's in control of CIA? Anyone here ...

America's Secret Police: Who's in control of CIA? Anyone here ... | 2ndlook - Politics Now | Scoop.it
CIA can tell the US-Secretary of State, that their position & authority are irrelevant - if it clashes with CIA-ops
2ndlook's insight:

f the ISI Chief in Pakistan were to assert his authority over the Foreign Minister of Pakistan, no one will be either shocked or surprised.

If the Israeli Mossad were to push their point of view over Israel’s Foreign Minister, it would not raise too many eyebrows.

Can the MI6 in Britain question the authority of the British Foreign Minister? Media reports make it seem unlikely.Can the head of RAW question the policy and authority of India’s Home Minister or Foreign Minister? Such a situation has never been examined or discussed in public, by the media or polity.

But, the CIA can simply tell the American Secretary of State, that their position and authority is irrelevant – if it clashes with CIA-operations.This is what has been reported by the American newspaper, New York Times.
