CIA Unlikely to Punish Staff Over Senate Computer Search: NYT
Page (1) of 1 - 12/20/14||
|According to the New York Times, a panel investigating the CIA's search of a computer network used by U.S. Senate staff will not recommend disciplining the agency officials involved in the incident. The review panel is looking into the search by agency officials of staffers from the Senate Intelligence Committee who were investigating the CIA's use of torture in interrogations of detainees after the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States. The Times, citing current and former government officials, said the panel was likely to fault the Central Intelligence Agency for missteps. But the newspaper said the decision not to recommend anyone for disciplinary action was likely to anger members of the Intelligence Committee, who have accused the agency of interfering with its investigation of agency wrongdoing.
