What's wrong with the CIA's World View?

What happened on 9/11/01 in New York City was a horror.
The forces that attacked the World Trade Center are totally reactionary.
BUT – what was done by the U.S. in the name of 9/11 – whether justified
by “safety,” “justice,” or simple revenge – turned out to be a far worse horror:
• Hundreds of thousands of people were killed and millions more turned into refugees – in the
U.S. war against Iraq (a country which was not even
connected to 9/11).
Tens of thousands were killed in Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and other countries.
• A worldwide network of CIA torture sites
run by the U.S. – including, but not limited to,
Guantanamo – was built, and a system of indefinite
detention without trial put in place through law and
executive orders by Bush and Obama.
Stripping of fundamental rights within
the U.S
giving the state virtually unlimited power to
spy on people’s personal communications and lives, and to
hold people without trial and – if the President deems it
necessary – to kill people without trial in targeted
Popular culture is further brutalized and degraded by the celebration and
justification of torture – as in the film “Zero Dark Thirty.”
There were people in the wake of 9/11 – including some who had lost loved
ones at the WTC – who declared “NOT IN OUR NAME.” That captures
our sentiment now.
We do not share
the CIA’s view of the world.
End these wars now, and stop torture
