FIre Top Three Secret Intelligence Officials
Fire James Clapper (Director of National Intelligence), Mike Vickers (Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence), and John Brannon (Director of the Central Intelligence Agency).
Why is this important?
Torture is not the only secret program that has failed to produce intelligence with integrity – this failure is true of every part of the secret world from the CIA, which relies on foreign liaison hand-outs for the bulk of its “clandestine” intelligence to the NSA, which processes less than 1% of what it collects, to the NRO and NGA that are inept at “Big Data” and incapable of providing all-source fused data to the end-user at a desk in Washington or in a foxhole abroad.
This is about far more than torture – this is about the complicity of military and civilian intelligence in assassinating thousands (with a documented 98% innocents along the way) while spending over a trillion dollars in a manner that is not helpful to Whole of Government strategy, policy, acquisition, and operations.

How it will be delivered
The same way I sent a letter to Susan Rice, via certified mail -- but more important is for all of you to share the petition, if you support it, with Members of Congress, who I am told are seriously considering the need for a "Saturday night massacre."
