The close relationship between intelligence agencies and scholars ... poses a conflict of interest.... If political scientists are working for the CIA, how can they function as objective and disinterested scholars?" Reference is to Chris Mooney, "For Your Eyes Only: The CIA Will Let You See Classified Documents -- But at What Price?" Lingua Franca, Nov. 2000, 35-43.
