An internal CIA investigation has found that the CIA "improperly accessed" computers being used by the Senate Intelligence Committee to investigate the CIA's post-9/11 interrogation program, McClatchy reports:
The statement represented an admission to charges by the panel’s chairwoman, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., that the CIA intruded into the computers her staff used to compile the soon-to-be released report on the agency’s use of harsh interrogation methods on suspected terrorists in secret overseas prisons during the Bush administration.
Committee staffers used computers inside a CIA facility to review documents related to the investigation, and Feinstein came to believe the CIA was monitoring their work, a belief confirmed by today's news.
The final report, said to be very critical of the CIA, will be declassified in "a few days."
