To answer the both of you...

... yes, she is aware of it.  Had to explain to her how the government spends the money that comes out of her paychecks in taxes.

She was also curious why Chinese made arms...

Same as my curiosity, why CIA and VOA banned to operate inside US soil, but free to terrorize other nation.

Actually...

My wife has used the Voice of America website to learn English, in America.

As for the CIA... you forget the rest of the puzzle palace groups, like NSA - who do operate on U.S. soil.  Then again, if we really want to sticklers on logic - CIA HQ is in Langley, Virginia.  Cannot operate a group with out a C&C hub.

Could it be the Americans are dumb enough to allow them?


Not that Z...  My wife wonders why something that the governement considers harmful to its citizens is being sold abroard, where it can harmful to other citizens.

This is something none of the perminent security council is willing to answer.

North,

VoA cannot conduct broadcast operations on US soil because it would then compete with US broadcasters, that's the reason and there was a big fight between its proponents and the broadcasting industry over the issue when it was created. The CIA is not allowed to pursue domestic intelligence because that is the job of the FBI and the CIA was not more powerful than J Edgar Hoover.
