    The only one that is screaming is Speaker Peliso do you hear any other members of the Gang of Eight past or present making any comment s No you don't. It is a well know fact that Speaker Peliso didn't attend many of the CIA brief instead she would send a rep who would have to leave when certain items were discussed.

    AP sources: House lays groundwork for CIA probe - Yahoo! News
    WASHINGTON – The House Intelligence Committee has asked the CIA to provide documents about the now-canceled program to kill al-Qaida leaders, congressional officials said Tuesday. The agency spent at least $1 million on the eight-year program before it was terminated last month, one congressional official said. Intelligence officials say the operation never progressed beyond a planning stage.

    The CIA said Tuesday that the agency would cooperate in the House move, a precursor to what would likely become a full-blown investigation into the secret operation and why the program was not disclosed to Congress. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

    CIA Director Leon Panetta, meanwhile, ordered a thorough internal review, agency spokesman George Little said.

    Panetta told Congress on June 24 that he had canceled the effort to kill al-Qaida leaders with hit teams soon after learning about the operation. Panetta also told lawmakers that former Vice President Dick Cheney directed the CIA not to inform Congress of the specifics of the secret program.
    So basically you got the CIA pulling the greatest mickey fickey of all times. They go public with destroying evidence. Then add that its just a little bit. Only a few tapes. Disinfo? Now you have them admitting there was a program and we have been lying for years. But it was just a little bitty program.
    I wanna know the secret operation name that is strictly devoted to minimizing blowback and making everything seem smaller than it really is. And it better sound cool.

    $1 million spent on a program that never got passed the planning stage in 8 years???

    That program should have been cut 2 years into it.

    I don't think you have been following the news for the past 3 days. Get back to me when you are up to speed.

    Diversionary tactic.

    Look at the CIA!....Pay no attention to the taxes I am about to lay upside your head.--Pelosi

    Message from the Director: Turning Down the Volume

    Statement to Employees by Director of the Central Intelligence Agency


    There is a long tradition in Washington of making political hay out of our business. It predates my service with this great institution, and it will be around long after I’m gone. But the political debates about interrogation reached a new decibel level yesterday when the CIA was accused of misleading Congress.

    Let me be clear: It is not our policy or practice to mislead Congress. That is against our laws and our values. As the Agency indicated previously in response to Congressional inquiries, our contemporaneous records from September 2002 indicate that CIA officers briefed truthfully on the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, describing “the enhanced techniques that had been employed.” Ultimately, it is up to Congress to evaluate all the evidence and reach its own conclusions about what happened.

    My advice—indeed, my direction—to you is straightforward: ignore the noise and stay focused on your mission. We have too much work to do to be distracted from our job of protecting this country.

    We are an Agency of high integrity, professionalism, and dedication. Our task is to tell it like it is—even if that’s not what people always want to hear. Keep it up. Our national security depends on it.

    Leon E. Panetta


    I really had my doubts about this guy but I am starting to see some common ground.




    Are any of these guys worried about the state of the economy right now?


    As long as they are wasting time trying to politically assassinate each other they are not screwing us at least.
    Thank you

    Wow. How enlightening. Wow.

    NOT.

    If though you're up, you didn't add anything worthwhile. Carry on.
