My CIA policy: Handle it like it's China

I've long thought that the best way to deal with China is to give them enough rope. Chinese culture tends to have a superiority complex, believing everyone else is kind of a stupid barbarian. Eventually this hurts them in their foreign policy, because they step on their neighbors' toes.

Likewise, eventually the CIA got too arrogant and overstepped. I wonder if that is what Sen. Feinstein was waiting for.
