A leading US senator has said that President Obama knew of an “unprecedented action” taken by the CIA against the Senate intelligence committee, which has apparently prompted an inspector general’s inquiry at Langley.

The subtle reference in a Tuesday letter from Senator Mark Udall to Obama, seeking to enlist the president’s help in declassifying a 6,300-page inquiry by the committee into torture carried out by CIA interrogators after 9/11, threatens to plunge the White House into a battle between the agency and its Senate overseers.

McClatchy and the New York Times reported Wednesday that the CIA had secretly monitored computers used by committee staffers preparing the inquiry report, which is said to be scathing not only about the brutality and ineffectiveness of the agency’s interrogation techniques but deception by the CIA to Congress and policymakers about it. The CIA sharply disputes the committee’s findings.

Naturally, the people at the top love spying on their own people but don't like it when they are spied upon.

P.S. - at this time you forgot to post a link to the article: Guardian

I wonder if Obama still thinks nobody is spying on him?

The CIA knows everything, IMO.

I suspect he knows that he is and that there are people who tell him (not advise) what to do as President.

This should not surprise anybody, because is well known that the Director of the CIA reports directly to the President of the US, CIA is one of the few agencies that are under the presidential directive, no so much with the bastard child call the NSA that now is in the hands of private interest working in behave of the government.

There was an NSA "whistle blower" that has been making the independent circuit (sort of) saying that he received orders to monitor Obama when he was just a Senator. I saw the guy on RT's Breaking the Set (propaganda of a different variety).

Perhaps lending more credence to presidents being "selected."

So yes, Obama has to know he is/was/currently being monitored.

I've always wondered if every new president (except 2) gets "the talk." The talk that reminds them of what happened to JFK and doing anything other than what they are told regarding "major plays" will yield a JFK ending for them.

There's not a smidgeon of proof here.

They may have unwittingly spied on them but not intentionally.

Just helping the President with his lies...

Seeing Obama and how he came to power, it's hard to come to any other conclusion than that.

I think the next 3 or 4 have already been selected. But hey, don't forget to VOTE!

You know things have gotten bad when government entities refuse to accept congressional oversight - which is Congresses job.

At what point did the executive branch agencies determine they no longer had to answer to the government?

They don't answer to the government since they became part of the corporate dictatorship that runs behind the presidential seat, the president call the shots for the voters and tax payer to see, but behind the president is another whole government call the shadow government and that government has been established since Reagan.

The secret is out and has been out for a long time, but it means nothing anymore. Our government is not better than any other editorship in third world countries where the wealth of the nations is stolen away by the few, in America is call capitalism but it only works one way while the biggest wealth is held by a few they still allow a few to think that they can live the American dream, when things get too hard to control due to their waste they get bailout by the people while the rest lose everything.
