Don’t Be Silly, CIA Couldn’t Have Spied On Congress! It’s Against The Law!
Don’t Be Silly, CIA Couldn’t Have Spied On Congress! It’s Against The Law!: There’s another one that says the CIA isn’t allowed to do domestic spying. That’s the FBI’s thing. But even if you ignore that, this shit is still disgraceful. Agencies that operate in good faith and within the law have no need to obstruct investigations. If you’re doing that, you’re admitting guilt. That might actually be the worst part of all of this — beyond the torture and the law breaking, the CIA is actually incompetent enough 1) to let Congress discover the CIA was spying on them, and 2) not to realize that their best chance of making this go away is to cooperate, say “sorry,” re-arrange the deck chairs, and move on. A lawless CIA is one thing, but a lawless CIA run by people who apparently can’t even manage a simple PR crisis is pretty fucking scary.
