You seem to think you know more about what I said than I do myself. This is an erroneous assumption.

You are indeed the master of erroneous assumptions, I'll give you that

     If this rescue had worked I would automatically have credited the CIA for finding the information needed , sometimes it isn't the CIA performing this function, but that is a reasonable assumption.

      It did not work, perhaps because of the information being flawed , perhaps for other reasons including plain bad luck.

     Since the Church commission and since President Obama is their boss right now.

      What is the CIA tasked with ordinarily?

Lets try to survive fifty years.

Secrets get opened on about that scale.

The CIA's greatest faults are those of action, which have caused blowback.

They are often fairly good at information gathering, thought they have apparently missed rather a goodly number of events they should have known about.
