    I rather have the CIA misleading Congress and day of the year and twice on Sunday if I know it's going to keep Americans alive and safe. Congress needs to just just up and try doing the job they were elected to do and let the President worry about what the CIA is doing.

    Personally I think it's time for the Over-Site Committie and Gang of Eight be removed for any contact with the CIA/NSC/NSA/DOD and FBI they should only report to the Office of the President this would save allot of time and on going BS that we have scene over the many years.
    AS long as congress has oversight responsibilities over the CIA, then it needs to get accurate and complete information from the CIA.

    Who knows what the secret program was that Panetta just found out about? Possibly it is the fact that the intelligence that formed the justification for the Iraq war was all phony.
    Hey here is a secret they have been doing this since 1947, I rather have them running this programs any day of the week. As for preserving the CIA thats fine with me.

    Oh by the way its Sect. Panetta

    Load of BS manufactured by the same crowd of trash that wasted and betrayed our soldiers in Iraq.

    Demorats have as much if not more blood on their hands as those in al Qaeda they care so much about.

    Leon Panetta is a political appointee in an organization that needs to be as far away from politics as possible. I am disappointed and somewhat angered that President Obama would appoint a man like Panetta, who has no experience other than to sit on an intel committee as a politician, over a man like General Michael Hayden, who has 40+ years experience in every intelligence organization within our government. Of course, Panetta is now showing why he is where he is. He's doing his "job".

    Ah yes, it's time to attack the messenger to draw attention away from the message.

    No it's not attacking the messenger Dir. Panetta is a political appointment who has no background in the Intel. and should never have been made Director of the CIA, he was outspoken critic of the CIA when he was part of the Clinton Admin.

    As for the CIA misleading Congress like I said who give a crap they(Congress) has been misleading the American Public for as long as the CIA has been around.

    Perhaps you should read between the lines rather than oversimplifying a point that is very simple to begin with. Pelosi is not goiing to take a fall for this. That is why Panetta is in the position he is in. He will make sure of it. I have worked in the intel field for a good bit now and I can tell you that these charges are outlandish to say the least.

    Let's use Occum's Razor here for a second.

    Which is the simplest explanation for this scenario:

    1) The CIA decides to lie in a Top Secret brief about using techniques that had already been approved by the President.

    2) A former Democratic Senator who has no earthly business holding the position he's in releases a statement to cover the ass of the second most powerful person of the party which he has supported over the last 2 decades.


    This isn't complicated.

    But is he being dishonest now? If not, he is doing nothing wrong, and any complaints about him are simply playing politics.

    I answered you foolish comments about the CIA being able to mislead an agency that has oversight for them already.
