Maybe the CIA isn't so bad after all

Over the last couple years, the Central Intelligence Agency has been pilloried for several failures real and imagined. The agency was criticized for failure to anticipate the 9/11 attacks and for WMD not being found in sufficient quantities. Well, I think we can state unequivically that the CIA is better that the Russian intelligence services. Consider this exchange between President Bush and President Putin of Russia.

When Bush confronted his Russian counterpart about the freedom of the press in Russia, Putin shot back with an attack of his own: "We didn't criticize you when you fired those reporters at CBS."

If that is emblematic of the information the KGB is providing Putin then I believe we need to re-think our criticism of our own intelligence services. All the KGB had to do was observe an essentially free society. We standard we are holding the CIA to is to figure out the plans and intentions of the most closed and secretive countries and organizations (al Qaeda) in the world.
