CIA apologizes for hacking Senate computers after internal investigation


The CIA appears to have admitted (albeit vaguely) that it surreptitiously accessed Senate computers to perform damage control in advance of a report on alleged torture under its watch. In a statement published by McClatchy, spokesperson Dean Boyd said that an internal investigations findings include a judgment that some CIA employees acted in a manner inconsistent with the common understanding reached between SSCI [Senate Select Committee on Intelligence] and the CIA in 2009. We dont know the contents of the report, but Boyd said that CIA head John Brennan briefed Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) earlier this week and apologized for the incident. Brennans response is a marked reversal from earlier this year, when he said that nothing could be further from the truth than CIA hacking Senate computers.
