WASHINGTON -- The new GOP chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee intends to give back to the CIA an explosive, secret document that has been at the center of a years-long struggle between Congress and the executive branch. The chairman, North Carolina’s Richard Burr, is also asking executive branch agencies to return unredacted copies of the 6,600 page torture report, he told The Huffington Post in an interview Tuesday night.
The twin moves mark a sharp turn in a new direction for congressional oversight of the intelligence community. The secret document is known colloquially as the Panetta Review, and Democrats who have read it say it is a broad and detailed admission of wrongdoing by the CIA. The agency argues that the document was incomplete when obtained by Senate investigators and doesn’t represent a consensus view within the CIA.
“The Panetta Review was never intended for the committee to have,” Burr told HuffPost. “At some point, we will probably send it back to where it came from.”
Just own the depravity
why bother at this point trying to 'send back' a document that is already leaked.
This was the same document that initiated the CIA spying on Congress scandal, in their attempt to suppress it.
You do know thats the NSA not the CIA.
That does domestic spying.

This is why it is important to know the how and why this happened because someone is to blame. There were voices protesting the invasion of Iraq at the time, the beginning of this whole mess. Remember what happened to the Dixie Chicks country western singers?
That was pretty much the atmosphere for anyone against the war.
