CIA caught spying on U.S. Senate computers

The CIA has been caught again spying on yet another government…not Germany or UK, or China, but this time the U.S.A.

Just moments ago The NY Times reported that an internal investigation has found that CIA officers improperly penetrated a computer network used by the Senate Intelligence Committee in preparing a report on the CIA’s rough house 9/11 detention and interrogation program.

Remember when CIA Director Brennan denied hacking allegations in March 2014…

BRENNAN: As far as the allegations of, you know, CIA hacking into, you know, Senate computers, nothing could be further from the truth. I mean, we wouldn’t do that. I mean, that’s — that’s just beyond the — you know, the scope of reason in terms of what we would do.

And today we have this…

WASHINGTON — CIA employees improperly accessed computers used by the Senate Intelligence Committee to compile a report on the agency’s now defunct detention and interrogation program, an internal CIA investigation has determined.

The bloggers at Moon of Alabama frame the situation this way…

Does anybody still believe that the CIA is not sniffing on Congress’ business? That it does not blackmail representatives and senators or that it does not otherwise illegally interferes in the business of the legislative?

And Zerohedge informs us that

…this is not the first time the CIA has hacked Senate networks but do not fear American citizenry, CIA Director has apologized for his staff “acting inappropriately” and is setting up an internal accountability board to review the matter.

Meanwhile the full report coming out of the Associated Press is pretty serious stuff (if anyone bothers to take it seriously)…

The State Department has endorsed the broad conclusions of a harshly critical Senate report on the CIA’s interrogation and detention practices after the 9/11 attacks, a report that accuses the agency of brutally treating terror suspects and misleading Congress, according to a White House document.

“This report tells a story of which no American is proud,” says the four-page White House document, which contains the State Department’s preliminary proposed talking points in response to the classified Senate report, a summary of which is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

The Senate report concludes that CIA’s techniques on al-Qaida detainees captured after the 2001 attacks were far more brutal than previously understood. The tactics failed to produce life-saving intelligence, the report asserts, and the CIA misled Congress and the Justice Department about the interrogation program.

Reading a snippet of the report above fully explains why the CIA decided to hack the Senate’s computer network and get at the report before anyone else did.

The New York Times broke the story…

In a statement issued Thursday morning, a C.I.A. spokesman said that agency’s inspector general had concluded that C.I.A. officers had acted inappropriately by gaining access to the computers.

The statement said that John O. Brennan, the C.I.A. director, had apologized to the two senior members of the Senate Intelligence Committee and that he would set up an internal accountability board to review the matter. The board will be led by former Senator Evan Bayh, Democrat of Indiana.

The statement gave almost no specifics about the findings of the report, written by David Buckley, the agency’s inspector general.

Officials said there was a tense meeting earlier this week when Mr. Brennan briefed the two senators — Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California and Saxby Chambliss, Republican of Georgia. The officials said Ms. Feinstein had confronted Mr. Brennan about past public statements on the issue, in which he defended the agency’s actions.

Good to know that Germany is not the only country sick of getting spied on all the time.
