In the old days, CIA's budget was bundled with the Army's, and Congress did not know how much and had little if any oversight. Congressmen didn't automatically get security clearances. I don't know how they do it now. It seems CIA can't get away with doodly squat any more.

It has. It referred to high resolution surveillance technology (satellite imagery) not known to the public then.

I am sure. It was drilled into us.
