Jimmy Dore Show: Dozens Of CIA Agents Running As Democrats In 2018 Elections

|

'The Jimmy Dore Show' discusses this article from the International Committee of the Fourth International's World Socialist Website reporting that out of 102 competitive Democratic Congressional primaries in 2018, "44 involve candidates with a military-intelligence or State Department background, with 11 districts having two such candidates, and one district having three."

The international socialists report: "One quarter of all the Democratic challengers in competitive House districts have military-intelligence, State Department or NSC backgrounds. This is by far the largest subcategory of Democratic candidates. National security operatives (57) outnumber state and local government officials (45), lawyers (35), corporate executives, businessmen and wealthy individuals (30) and other professionals (19) among the candidates for Democratic congressional nominations."

"The Democratic leaders are promoting CIA agents and Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans. At the same time, such people are choosing the Democratic Party as their preferred political vehicle. There are far more former spies and soldiers seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party than of the Republican Party. There are so many that there is a subset of Democratic primary campaigns that, with a nod to Mad magazine, one might call 'spy vs. spy.'"
