Alec Baldwin: Oddly Simple
Alec Baldwin has put his considerable brainpower to coming up with a solution to ill will toward the United States in the Middle East.
There is a way to defeat terrorism while building new and better alliances in the Arab world. It will be an enormously complex and difficult diplomatic puzzle. But the first step might be oddly simple. Get rid of the CIA, which has outlived its usefulness and is an embarrassment to this great country, and rebuild and reform US intelligence capabilities to fight this new type of threat. I think our hopes must begin there.
That’s the end of the piece. No explanation at all is provided for why getting rid of the CIA would be helpful. That’s because, presented with something so profound, its obvious brilliance and clarity ends discussion. Alex Baldwin says so. Q.E.D.
