The CIA has asked the Justice Department to investigate whether its officers were monitoring members of the Senate Intelligence Committee while they were working on a report about the previous administrations detention and interrogation programs. The alleged meddling came as the Intelligence Committee was compiling a 6,300-page inquiry into how the US used interrogation techniques during the George W. Bush administration. According to McClatchy, the still-classified report is a searing indictment of the program, which made use of waterboarding and other interrogation techniques to garner intelligence information following the 9/11 attacks. The issue was brought to a head following a letter published yesterday by Senator Mark Udall, of Colorado, asking President Obama once again to declassify the committees report in order to clarify inaccurate information released by the CIA.
