Panetta didn't admit anything that is the accusation made by the Democrats who wrote the letter.
We who have work in the Intel Field know very well what we can and can't say, we also know what can happen to us if we do reveal Classified items.
What he posted is the truth Speaker Pelosi has made bold statements to date that she hasn't provided any proof. And as I have said the CIA misleading Congress yea maybe but Congress has been misleading the American People for just as long.
If you're going to try to insult someone do so with a comment that an adult will not laugh at.
Either you have a fantasy land view of the "Intellgince Field" or you where so eager to smear him that you fail to notice the stupidity in your own remarks.
BTW I'm sure your trolling, insulting. flaming, and implying will result in no actions taken against you,. In order for that to occur you must do it while mocking that fake black Joke Obama and his ass licking supporters.

I implied nothing. I stated my opinion.
If you don't like that.. I don't care.

I can't physically ignore you(it won't let me) but from now on consider yourself on ignore in respects to me.

AP sources: Cheney told CIA not to discuss program - Yahoo! News
WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Dick Cheney directed the CIA eight years ago not to inform Congress about a nascent counterterrorism program that CIA Director Leon Panetta terminated in June, officials with direct knowledge of the matter said Saturday.
Subsequent CIA directors did not inform Congress because the intelligence-gathering effort had not developed to the point that they believed merited a congressional briefing, said a former intelligence official and another government official familiar with Panetta's June 24 briefing to the House and Senate Intelligence committees.
Panetta did not agree.
Upon learning of the program June 23 from within the CIA, Panetta terminated it and the next day called an emergency meeting with the House and Senate Intelligence committees to inform them of the program and that it was canceled.

I think both sides need to cool the partisan hackery until we know more about this. There simply isn't enough information here to take it as gospel or to dismiss it completely. Personally, I will be interested to see how the investigations progress. If it is true, everyone, regardless of political leaning should be thoroughly outraged. It's sad that the hyper-partisan hacks on both sides are, in true "business as usual" form, using this story as yet another excuse to attack the other side with the same tired talking points.
