Walk Away

Walk Away

You’ve made so many promises that you don’t keep
You take my money and you smile for the TV
I can’t trust you when I’m awake or when I sleep
I don’t believe that you have grasped reality

Walk away, Walk away
I’ve walked away from you
Walk away, walk away
I have friends who do come through

You come and beg when you want me to give to you
You hang with wealthy friends when I am not around
You jump and dive from interview to interview
You do not care until you’re hungry as a hound

Walk away, Walk away
I’ve walked away from you
Walk away, walk away
I have friends who do come through

Don’t come here with your phony smile and phony talk
My newfound friends are there for me in time of need
While your big mouth has changed you to a laughingstock
I’ll find myself a job while you pretend to lead

Walk away, Walk away
I’ve walked away from you
Walk away, walk away
I have friends who do come through

Walk away, walk away
Goodbye, goodbye
Leave me alone

Stephen E. Arnold: Librarians Protest Against CIA

CIA is a disgrace. While it is living up to its Deep State founders’ intent, it should have morphed long ago — as I began suggesting within CIA in 1986 and outside CIA from 1988 onward — into a true all source INTELLIGENCE (decision support) agency, rather than a DIRTY TRICKS agency. I continue to believe that we must a) create an Open Source Agency; b) reduce all secret agencies including CIA by up to 70%; and c) consolidate what is left of all secret agencies at CIA as directorates (for signals, imagery, etcetera). Somewhere in there we teach and enforce the Constitution and ethics.
