Sometimes one gets the feeling a director tries to make a ham-fisted "point" that just sounds so pat, so "of course that's what they think" that you know it is false.
Just so when Damon informs Pesci that everyone but WASPS are just "visitors" in America.
I would counter De Niro's bone-headed observation with FDR's justly-famous opening address to the hoity-toity Daughters of the American Revolution: "Fellow immigrants". Even he, an American blue-blood if there ever was one, shot down that notion some 70 years ago.
Likewise, just so, when some CIA clown smirks about Congress thinking they have any oversight function vis a vis the CIA.
Meanwhile fifty years of history has told EVERYONE that the CIA are ass-clowns who generally f*ck things up.
Mr Skull and Bones can smirk all he wants, be he and the CIA still come up a loser in the public's view --- and that's from the left and the right.
That's why, perhaps, John Blue BlueBlood Kerry is regarded as a complete dickweed, despite his supposed pedigree.
