Panetta Admitted CIA Misled Congress Since 2001, Lawmakers Say - Yahoo! News
Nancy Pelosi is of course suggesting that this is confirmation that she told the truth about the CIA, though nowhere does the information released so far show any evidence of that, and probably won't due to the way the records of her meetings with the CIA where kept.Six Democrats on the U.S. House Intelligence Committee said that CIA Director Leon Panetta told lawmakers the agency had misled Congress since 2001 about “significant actions.”
In a letter to Panetta, the six legislators said he had “recently” testified that “top CIA officials have concealed significant actions from all members of Congress” and “misled members” from 2001 until this week.
The letter, released by the lawmakers yesterday, didn’t describe what Central Intelligence Agency actions were at issue.
However, this is very big. I assume(some one who knows for sure please confirm or not) that the CIA lying to congress is probably criminal, certainly unethical. What was lied about, and who if any one ordered the lying are both big questions. I suspect there are going to be some serious investigations happen over this.
