    Feinstein: CIA searched Intelligence Committee computers

    The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday sharply accused the CIA of violating federal law and undermining the constitutional principle of congressional oversight as she detailed publicly for the first time how the agency secretly removed documents from computers used by her panel to investigate a controversial interrogation program.
    Gee, Dianne. While the CIA was vacuuming up our phone records, you were pretty much silent. What changed?...... Oh yea, now that they have spied on you, it's a different story. Here's the deal. You can't be luke warm on the Constitution. You either defend it, or you just shut the **** up. I hope you learned your lesson here, and will now do what you should have been doing years ago. It's time you finally unleash your inner bitch on the assholes, and stop being such a damn hypocrite.

    On one hand, my rather unhealthy disdain for Sen. Feinstein compels me to laugh in her face, given the history of her views and positions. On the rational side, your words are spot on.

    Secretly removed documents?
    That sounds like going beyond the unconstitutional spying on private citizens. That's tampering with evidence, removing it in fact.

    When it comes to politics and political leaders, hypocrisy is the name of the game. As long as you're doing it to others or the other political party, it is perfectly okay. But do not let it happen to me or my party, then it is as wrong as wrong can be.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    lol what does this have to do with metadata collection? Why are any of you even talking about that?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Re: Feinstein: CIA searched Intelligence Committee computers

    Her accusations of CIA-led computer searches were denied by CIA Director John Brennan. They brought into the open a simmering row between the committee and the agency that had been brewing for months and disrupted the committee's work.

    Feinstein said that in January, the CIA's Brennan requested an emergency meeting with her and the committee's top Republican, Senator Saxby Chambliss.

    Feinstein has been pushing to make the report's findings public but infighting with the CIA had meant the formal process to declassify the document had not even begun. Feinstein said she hoped declassification could begin before the end of March.

    A key dispute is over how the committee acquired what Feinstein and others describe as the CIA's own internal review of its interrogation tactics and secret prisons, and its use of "rendition," a practice in which prisoners are transferred between countries without formal judicial process.

    Feinstein and committee sources say they had found the review in the computer system the CIA set up for their use and at some point their staff printed out a copy and took it to their offices on Capitol Hill.

    In a letter Brennan wrote to Feinstein in January, which was obtained by Reuters, he acknowledged the data had been deposited in the part of the CIA computer network to which Senate investigators had access but said he did not know how this happened.

    Brennan vigorously defended the CIA's commitment to working with Congress. "We are a far better organization because of congressional oversight," he said.....snip~

    Not that I care so much for Feinstein and don't agree with her being on any intelligence committee.....but it does seem like Brennan just can't keep his story together. Naturally they would be willing to give up the program over rendition etc etc.

    Also admitting that Congressional Oversight....makes them a better organization. Isn't saying a whole hell of a lot either.

    It would appear the radical left doesn't want to talk about this much; even when one of their own is sounding the alarm of administration overstepping. Guess the left is ciricling its little wagons behind the dictator again.
