Read this article from Wikipedia defining State within a State, or Deep State, and ask yourself whether the US Congress controls foreign policy, or whether the Central Intelligence Agency controls it though its control of its 16 subordinate intelligence agencies, the apparatchiki in the Pentagon, State Dept., Treasury Dept., MIC, and the Associated Press which runs press releases from these sources as news.

Doesn't this help explain why US foreign policy is essentially the same year after year no matter whether Democrats or Republicans control Congress and/or the White House?

So, imho, US foreign policy has everything to do with the CIA.
