CIA Admits Spying On Senate Computers

Tyler Durden's picture




 

It's not been a good day for the CIA. First, the State Department slams them for brutally treating terror suspects after the 9/11 attacks, noting that "no American is proud" of CIA tactics. And now, as The NY Times reports, an internal investigation has found that its officers improperly penetrated a computer network used by the Senate Intelligence Committee in preparing the report on the CIA's detention and interrogation program. Of course, this is not the first time the CIA has hacked Senate networks but do not fear American citizenry, CIA Director has apologized for his staff "acting inappropriately" and is setting up an internal accountability board to review the matter.

 

The report is damning... (via AP)

The State Department has endorsed the broad conclusions of a harshly critical Senate report on the CIA's interrogation and detention practices after the 9/11 attacks, a report that accuses the agency of brutally treating terror suspects and misleading Congress, according to a White House document.

 

"This report tells a story of which no American is proud," says the four-page White House document, which contains the State Department's preliminary proposed talking points in response to the classified Senate report, a summary of which is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

 

The Senate report concludes that CIA's techniques on al-Qaida detainees captured after the 2001 attacks were far more brutal than previously understood. The tactics failed to produce life-saving intelligence, the report asserts, and the CIA misled Congress and the Justice Department about the interrogation program.

So it is no wonder the CIA decided it was above the law and hacked the Senate's PCs... (via NY Times)

In a statement issued Thursday morning, a C.I.A. spokesman said that agency’s inspector general had concluded that C.I.A. officers had acted inappropriately by gaining access to the computers.

 

The statement said that John O. Brennan, the C.I.A. director, had apologized to the two senior members of the Senate Intelligence Committee and that he would set up an internal accountability board to review the matter. The board will be led by former Senator Evan Bayh, Democrat of Indiana.

 

The statement gave almost no specifics about the findings of the report, written by David Buckley, the agency’s inspector general.

 

Officials said there was a tense meeting earlier this week when Mr. Brennan briefed the two senators — Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California and Saxby Chambliss, Republican of Georgia. The officials said Ms. Feinstein had confronted Mr. Brennan about past public statements on the issue, in which he defended the agency’s actions.

Of course Brennan denied it all when Feinstein first lost her temper over it...

When the C.I.A.'s monitoring of the committee became public in March Mr. Brennan said, “When the facts come out on this, I think a lot of people who are claiming that there has been this tremendous sort of spying and monitoring and hacking will be proved wrong.”

Nope - you lied... and once again there is no accountability

The CIA was supposed to only spy on foreign interests.  I think that changed with the Patriot Act, but even if it didn't, there are around 27 Congressmen and 13 Senators who currently hold dual citizenship with Israel to keep the CIA spooks busy.

Senate:
•Senator Barbara Boxer (California)
•Senator Benjamin Cardin (Maryland)
•Senator Russ Feingold (Wisconsin)
•Senator Al Franken (Minnesota)
•Senator Dianne Feinstein (California)
•Senator Herb Kohl (Wisconsin)
•Senator Frank Lautenberg (New Jersey)
•Senator Joe Lieberman (Connecticut) (Independent)
•Senator Carl Levin (Michigan)
•Senator Bernard Sanders (Vermont) (Independent)
•Senator Charles Schumer (New York)
•Senator Ron Wyden (Oregon)

House of Representatives:
•Representative Gary Ackerman (New York)
•Representative John H. Adler (New Jersey)
•Representative Shelley Berkley (Nevada)
•Representative Howard Berman (California)
•Representative Steve Cohen (Tennessee)
•Representative Susan Davis (California)
•Representative Eliot Engel (New York)
•Representative Bob Filner (California)
•Representative Barney Frank (Massachusetts)
•Representative Gabrielle Giffords (Arizona)
•Representative Alan Grayson (Florida)
•Representative Jane Harman (California)
•Representative Paul Hodes (New Hampshire)
•Representative Steve Israel (New York)
•Representative Steve Kagen (Wisconsin)
•Representative Ronald Klein (Florida)
•Representative Sander Levin (Michigan)
•Representative Nita Lowey (New York)

The USSA had to agree to provide this information after it suffered a loss of life in the attack on USS Liberty. To cover up its heinous crime and its flagrant violation of international law in permitting its citizen soldires to die in the unprovoked attack, the USSA was forced to make amends by supplying a foreign power with detailed intelligence on US citizens.

This is the small price the USSA must pay for being the worlds sole super power.

Is that bullshit or what?

And if somebody tried to pass a law preventing this where would the bribes come from? LOL! (It isn't funny) Question: how many other countries have dual citizens in the USSA? Hmmm?

my thought is that the 'hidden hand' fully intends to unleash armed chaos in North America, to dramatically change everything here.  Destroying the legitimacy of the current government seems to have a long term goal that has played out well, just look at government gridlock and congress' approval ratings. 

besides, nothing new really...  wasn't this all done in Rome and various other countries throughout history, and hasn't it been reflected in popular culture repeatedly (chancelor palpatine, please save the republic....)

I was wondering the same, like the concept of the "bad bank" that gets bankrupted and all the bad debt goes with it while another entity with the good assets gets to go forward and continue doing business, I am wondering if the CIA is being thrown under the bus as the "bad spooks." The "good spooks" are already doing business and they will be even less visible and transparent because they are going to be even more self sufficient.

Obama administration drops investigation into CIA spying on US Senate


By Patrick Martin 
12 July 2014


The US Department of Justice announced Thursday that it would not investigate charges that the CIA had spied on members of the staff of the Senate Intelligence Committee, whitewashing the brazenly illegal actions of the US intelligence apparatus. “The department carefully reviewed the matters referred to us and did not find sufficient evidence to warrant a criminal investigation,” read the Justice Department statement.

The department will also not investigate countercharges by the CIA that Senate staffers had gained unauthorized access to CIA documents, effectively equating the two and prompting the corporate-controlled media (which has largely buried the story) to portray the action as a neutral, “hands-off” position in a murky dispute between the Senate and the CIA.

The CIA surveillance of the activities of the Senate committee—which is charged by law with oversight of the CIA—was such a flagrant violation of the constitutional separation of powers that the panel’s chairman, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, took the extraordinary step of denouncing the agency in an hour-long speech on the Senate floor on March 11.

A longtime hardline defender of the intelligence apparatus, Feinstein was visibly disturbed by what she had learned of the CIA’s actions, which she said “may well have violated the separation-of-powers principle embodied in the United States Constitution,” and also “the Fourth Amendment, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, as well as Executive Order 12333, which prohibits the CIA from conducting domestic searches or surveillance.”

The conflict arose over the four-year campaign by the CIA to stall the Senate committee’s inquiry into torture of prisoners at secret CIA-run prisons (“black sites”) between 2002 and 2006 under the Bush administration. Dozens of prisoners captured in Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries were taken to these secret prisons in a half dozen countries—Thailand, Romania and Poland among them—and subjected to waterboarding and other forms of torture.

No one!

The big crooks (MIC, Intel, Banks, politicians) are doing their best to rob and controll, but they fight amongst themselves too.

The productive people of N. America could control everything, but they don't believe that they have any right to control anything... not even their own lives.

People think Texas is some sort of haven from statism, until they move here.  They've been taking thumbprints for over a decade, and you have to do an automated eye test, so it is likely recording biometrics there as well.  They already have my prints (conceal carry, NFA weapons, etc.) but it still pisses me off.

Feinstein was not furious. That is all for show. She knows fools will think that because of her hawkish reputation when she says she is furious at the CIA she means it. So fools reason: they need to do nothing since even Feinstein is upset. So fools do nothing. Meanwhile Feinstein delays, obscures, changes the subject--from torture (at a minimum) to hacking!--makes sure nobody looses their job, and somehow gets credit for standing up against Langley. You are a fucking fool if you think Feinstein was doing anything other than making sure that the status quo is 100% maintained. Like all those pyschos in DC, when she raises her voice and acts really indignant, she is telling her biggest lies. She lost her temper?! Lolol. Funniest shit I've heard all day.
