In Truthout today, Robert Naiman from Just Foreign Policy writes: “Of course the track record suggests that the causation actually runs the other way; it’s not classified because it’s a CIA operation; it’s a CIA operation in order for it to be classified. The Obama administration has chosen to make it a CIA operation so the US government won’t have to answer questions about it on the public record. The executive branch has perceived – largely correctly, unfortunately, until now – stamping a CIA label on an operation as a get-out-of-jail-free card to escape transparency and accountability.” Please read the full op-ed on Truthout.
