ABSTRACT
This article presents commentary on the condition of the CIA and the FBI in the U.S., and the dissipation of power of these agencies. Covert operations in foreign countries must be reported to seven congressional committees. Warrants for surveillance of American citizens abroad are forbidden unless the Attorney General has proven evidence of criminal activity. Morale is low in these agencies and early retirement common.
