Anyhow, I wasn't told the reason and was simply left to ponder how come our Constitution is being violated. Let's say it gave me pause. I've seen it firsthand. And that's another reason why I am writing this book, because I believe it's vital to our democracy to see the hidden pattern that's been undermining this country for most of my lifetime. The Bush Administration, which made lying into an "art form" that took us into the Iraq War, was in a way the logical extension of all the cover-ups, crimes, and conspiracies that preceded it.

The National Security Act of 1947, according to the  CIA's own website , "made a crucial concession to members concerned about threats to civil liberties. It drew a bright line between foreign and domestic intelligence and assigning these realms, in effect, to the CIA and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, respectively. The CIA, furthermore, would have no 'police, subpoena, or law enforcement powers,' according to the act."

If what Ventura reports happened in 1999, one wonders how bad things are now. If there were CIA operatives in every state government back then, are CIA or Homeland Security agents also present in every major city now? How far does the national security blanket extend at this point in time? And who would be willing to admit it or report on it?  These are troubling questions for those who still care about our constitutional civil liberties.
