Panetta: CIA Misled Congress
CIA director Leon Panetta told Congress in a recent briefing that the agency misled them on “significant actions” for a “number of years.”
In a letter written to Panetta on June 26 by seven Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee, the CIA chief is urged to “publicly correct” an earlier statement he made in which he insisted that it was not agency policy to mislead Congress.
As the letter details, Panetta apparently acknowledged in an earlier briefing that this statement was not, in fact, true.
The “significant actions” that were concealed were Bush interrogation policies. I presume apologies to Nancy Pelosi with be forthcoming from all those who excoriated her because she stood up the the CIA.Click here for reuse options!
