  •  There were some not so subtle digs at Dulles (4+ / 0-)

    and the CIA, too - remember the reference to the HYDRA faction in SHIELD altering events to make the world more chaotic?  The image on screen was a headline about the death of Howard Stark, but all I could think of were the CIA assassinations and coups that toppled leftish regimes from Mosadegh and Allende on down.

    Another subtle little note:  there's a shot of Steve's bookshelf showing several biographies of recent political figures.  He's reading Bush II's memoir, but it's sitting under a book called "Madam President."  

    Somehow I don't think Steve is going to vote for whatever Republican dingdong gets the nomination in 2016.  He knows first-hand what their policies did to America.
