Still Big Brother? Yep.

"In his address last week, to a conference of historians, [Gen. Micheal] Hayden acknowledged that the papers 'provide a glimpse of a very different time and a very different agency.'"

Honestly, what's so different about the CIA now and the CIA then? Still arresting, interrogating, and imprisoning people overseas? Yep. Still tapping people's phones and investigating civil rights protestors? Yep. Still plotting against foreign leaders at the behest of Presidents? Yep. Yep. Still conducting all these operations during an ideologically unsound war? Yep. Still Big Brother? Definitely. Anyone duped by this publicity stunt to believe the CIA has cleaned up its act deserves to be. That's my take anyway.
