The CIA is responsible for spying on our friends and enemies alike, and keeping our leaders informed about global situations and what's really going on. So when you have the CCP (China) lying to WHO about a SARS/Corona virus they were studying in a lab in Wuhan, and it got out into the general population, and they're burning the evidence and disappearing whistleblowers -- it is the CIA's job to make sure the President/Administration/Congress knows what the fuck is going on. The CDC handles the response to it, but the CIA gives us the intelligence to make informed decisions. They were completely absent on the whole COVID mess. This makes the Iraq War, Bush lied... fiasco (where George Tenet said, "WMD's were a slam dunk") look like it was competent.
