Sidney Blumenthal’s expose of the Bush White House’s successful efforts to dismantle the CIA puts a knee-jerk liberal in an awkward place. After all, the CIA is not exactly a well-respected organization in leftward circles. Even so, if Blumenthal’s insider gossip is accurate, it doesn’t take much thought to realize the transfer of covert power from a civilian agency to a military one won’t do much to further a rational humanitarian agenda.

Maybe it’s a sign that jerking limbs aren’t the best substitute for rational thought?

That might or might be a nice thing to pursue and it is a debate worht having but it is probably not a job for the government.
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
The rest of that document is a statement of how to get that done. Agendas are not on the agenda if you will.
