Congressional aides involved in preparing the Senate Intelligence Committee’s unreleased study of the CIA’s secret interrogation and detention program walked out of the spy agency’s fortress-like headquarters with classified documents that the CIA contended they weren’t authorized to have, McClatchy has learned.
So didja also hear the one about how staffers with the Senate Intelligence Committee walked out of Langley with paper copies of an internal CIA report that describes how that agency’s public response differed wildly with what they stated on the inside? Ok, it’s getting harder and harder to joke about this. Is there any remaining doubt that the Central Intelligence Agency has gone rogue?
The only funny thing left is that in trying to upbraid the committee about how their staffers “stole” that report (others might look at that as Congress performing, you know, “oversight”) the CIA revealed that they had been spying on the computers those staffers used. Whoops! Oh and there’s also Dear Leader’s response to this when he was questioned while hanging out with some governors:
While eating lunch during a visit to New Britain, Conn., with four New England governors, Obama was asked by a reporter if he had any reaction to the allegation that the CIA monitored Intelligence Committee computers.
“I’m going to try to make sure I don’t spill anything on my tie,” he responded.
Gee, thanks. This whole thing continues to turn into a nightmare. The CIA must be terrified of this stuff ever seeing the light of day, given their extreme efforts to suppress it. You don’t suppose their could be blatant evidence of human rights violations and war crimes in there, do ya?
