Inspector General: CIA Broke Into Senate Computers

WASHINGTON — CIA Director John Brennan apologized to Senate intelligence committee leaders after his inspector general found that CIA employees acted improperly when the agency searched Senate computers earlier this year.

Agency spokesman Dean Boyd said in an email to the Associated Press on Thursday that Brennan has convened an accountability board that will investigate the conduct of the CIA officers and discipline them, if need be.

The Justice Department has so far declined to pursue criminal charges against the employees, who searched the computers for information gathered in the course of a Senate investigation into the CIA’s interrogation techniques.

Imagine that.

Must just be another one of those phony scandals Obama was talking about!

Oh yeah. Sure.

If there ever is such a report generated, it'll be at least two years before it's done, and then it'll be classified so nobody can see it. And all it'll do will be to sort of vaguely blame somebody who is retiring anyway, and already has a deal to work for a contractor at five times their Agency pay. The sort-of scapegoat will still get to retire before any action is taken, and he'll still get to work for the contractor who won't be barred from Government procurements despite hiring him...much like Fast & Furious.

Discipline them? How about rewarding them - especially if they can find the missing IRS emails, the under-the-table dealings of the witches of the west coast and any other anti-citizen congressional BS.

Two Democratic senators demanded that Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan resign on Thursday after revelations that the CIA snooped on Senate computers.

Administration officials briefed the Senate Intelligence Committee’s membership on Thursday afternoon about an inspector general report that revealed CIA officials improperly accessed computers used by Senate staffers to research a 6,700-page report on the agency’s Bush-era interrogation and detention practices.
