15. It's past time for the intelligence services to stop pretending they are not accountable and don't

have to demonstrate efficacy and ROI, like every other institution, public or private. Some people around here are acting as if everything is just peachy with the CIA, NSA, etc., and that the rest of us were born yesterday. I've been reading about the failures and domestic abuses of the IC since the first revelations were printed in 1967. Nothing changes except US intelligence is increasingly intrusive on the lives and liberties of Americans, has proven itself ineffective at protecting us from terrorist attacks, and the costs of privatized intelligence functions continue to escalate faster than any other part of the federal budget. Geez, yourself.
