Conflict Erupts in Public Rebuke on C.I.A. Inquiry

Posted on March 12th, 2014 at 15:50 by John Sinteur in category: News -- Write a comment


Describing what she called a “defining moment” for the oversight of American spy agencies, Ms. Feinstein said the C.I.A. had removed documents from computers used by Senate Intelligence Committee staff members working on a report about the agency’s detention program, searched the computers after the committee completed its report and referred a criminal case to the Justice Department in an attempt to thwart their investigation.


Hours later, John O. Brennan, the C.I.A. director, forcefully denied Ms. Feinstein’s assertions that the agency had carried out a broad effort to spy on the committee’s work.

“Nothing could be further from the truth,” Mr. Brennan said in response to questions during an appearance at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington.

Well, I never believe something until it has been officially denied…

Anyway, if she’s not doing anything wrong she has nothing to worry about. Right?

  1. I really wonder how sincere Feinstein’s protestations are.

  2. Not at all.

    Let me summarize her position with her past history on the CIA here:

    Kidnap, torture, rape, murder, lie, finance warlords, bomb cell phones, drug citizens, blackmail, destabilize governments, assassinate leaders foreign and domestic, smuggle weapons, operate without oversight, create your own secret courts and laws, take a dump on habeus corpus, create terrorists all you want but DON’T YOU DARE DELETE MY PDFs!

  3. The public opinion is shifting against the CIA, so obviously if she wants to be reelected…..

  4. If there’s anyone that needs to be spied on, it’s Feinstein and the people that elected her. Inquiring minds want to know.

  5. @John: …but apart from that, what have the Romans ever done for us?

  6. Brought peace?

  7. I think the CIA is covering up a report that says that they’re spying on the NSA.

  8. @Desiato, of course the CIA will spy on the NSA, they’re the biggest enemy of Democracy in this county.

  9. @Desiato: Oh…that would save them the trouble of spying on everyone else you mean?
