Uh-oh. Don't you hate it when this happens?

When you get caught deleting investigators' files -- the same investigators investigating your Bush-era wrong-doing.

What are you going to do -- well if you're the CIA, "Deny Everything" of course.


CIA director apologizes over Senate computer searches

by Kevin Johnson, USA TODAY, usatoday.com -- July 31, 2014

[...]
The CIA's inspector general concluded that "some employees acted in a manner inconsistent'' with an agreement reached between the Senate and the CIA governing the Senate's inquiry into agency detention and interrogation techniques, CIA spokesman Dean Boyd said in a written statement.

Senators said the breach interfered with the committee's investigation. The detention and interrogation report, which promises a scathing review of U.S. treatment of al-Qaeda suspects immediately following the 9/11 attacks, has not yet been released.

"The director is committed to correcting any shortcomings related to this matter,'' Boyd said, adding that Brennan is commissioning a special accountability board to review the inspector general's findings, which could lead to disciplinary measures.

That'll cover their back-sides. Start your own Investigation to investigate yourself for your 'supposed' wrong-doings.

Maybe Gov. Christie can give them a few pointers on that trick, eh?


Uh-oh. Don't you hate it when this happens?

When you get caught accusing your accusers of 'irrationality' -- the same investigators accusing you of spying and deleting where you don't really belong.

What are you going to do -- well if you're CIA Director John Brennan, you "ridicule your accusers" of course -- for boldly telling the world the Truth. That the CIA's Over-reach has really gone too damn far.


CIA to Senate: Whoops, We Actually Did Break Into Your Computers

by Elias Groll, thecable.foreignpolicy.com -- July 31, 2014

"Nothing could be further from the truth." That was CIA Director John Brennan's response in March when confronted with allegations that the agency had spied on Senate staffers assembling a report on Bush-era detention and interrogation policies. "I mean we wouldn't do that. I mean that's just beyond the scope of reason in terms of what we would do," Brennan added before the Council on Foreign Relations.

Four months later, Brennan is singing a very different tune. [...]


Yeah, since spying on the Oversight Committee has got them in 'unreasonable' trouble -- NOW the CIA want to Oversight-itself!

They want to "commission a Special Accountability Board" ... and we should just Trust Them.


Yeah right. That's like trusting a Wall Street banker to take a voluntary cut in pay, in order to pay MORE of their share of 'patriotic taxes'

-- Right, like THAT will ever happen; NOT without some kind of legislative-incentiving shoves.


Like those 'above oversight' are just going to Do-good, just out of the "goodness of their heart."  Yeah right.  They've already gone WAY too far down the other road, for that to happen.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
