CIA Caught Tampering With Its Own Oversight Committee

The scandals surrounding the American intelligence agencies seem to have no bounds. In a new article at the New York Times, the CIA has allegedly been caught hacking into computers of the investigative committee that is looking into their torture activities.

Careful not to disclose exactly what the CIA did, members of the committee call it "unprecedented action" taken by the CIA to compromise information related to the case. An educated guess would be that they destroyed information that they felt the committee should not have access to, but had in their possession.

It is alarming to think that the even the Senate Intelligence Committee is not immune to tampering by the intelligence agencies. It is becoming more and more clear that these entities answer to no one. Congress has made a formal complaint to the Inspector General who is now performing an internal investigation into the CIA's conduct on the matter.
