CIA Apologizes for Spying on U.S. Senate — Naharnet

In March, CIA Director John Brennan dismissed allegations the agency had spied on Senate intelligence committee investigators probing possible torture, insisting: “Nothing could be further that the truth.”But on Thursday, in an abrupt climb down, the U.S. intelligence agency confirmed that a review by its own inspector general had confirmed that officers had indeed acted beyond their authority.A spokesman said Brennan had met Senate Select Committee on Intelligence SSCI Chairwoman Senator Dianne Feinstein and her deputy “and apologized to them.”The scandal centers around a computer archive, RDINet, set up by the CIA in a secure building in Virginia to make classified documents available to Senate officials investigating allegations that the agency tortured prisoners between 2002 and 2006.
