GOP Plans To Give Explosive Document Back To CIA

The Senate Intelligence Committee report that exposed the extent of CIA torture and 'detailed admission of wrongdoing' by the CIA, known as the Penetta Review is now at risk of being buried by incoming GOP chairman Richard Burr;


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.”


This was the same document that initiated the CIA spying on Congress scandal, in their attempt to suppress it.

Why bother burying it. A majority of Americans support the worst of the worst. Just own the depravity.
Make it into a movie or a game show.

That would make a great motto for our system of corruption government - we all know it's depraved. Just own it. As to Burr - why bother at this point trying to 'send back' a document that is already leaked. It's pointless, it's just a gesture from Republicans to the CIA that they condone the contents of that report.

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.

The US government is in denial about everything else…

This gives them the right down the road to claim plausible deniability…

"What document?" Or, "I never got a chance to read it".

Good stuff for senate hearings (or the Hague).

Is one issue not that the CIA had been doing so?

Problem is that could have been anyone.

From Russia to China to, Iran, North Korea to some script kiddie to ISIS to other government agencies- NSA.

People have already had this discussion,

Dunno why people want to keep rehashing it.

It's been 15 years already.

I guess people forgot Snowden already.

What are you talking about? The scandal, as pertaining to this report and cited in the OP, was when the CIA snooped on the Senate computer network.

CIA - not the NSA, which is another can of worms.

Of course if you only watch Fox "News" you probably never heard of the CIA spying scandal...

That had a lot to do with the republican zealots who thought Bush could do no wrong. You see how much republicans literally hate, not to mention disrespect their commander in chief, yet still have the highest reverence for Bush. Yet he was far worse in terms of literally being a traitor to the people of the United States. The GOP will always use the most underhanded tactics whenever possible, and will always be the most to benefit from the military industrial complex. This is true also when it comes to oil, which goes hand in hand with the military industrial complex. And all of this ties in to the torture that occurred. The republicans seem to typically forgot how Bush blatantly lied to our faces about not only the torture, but about the war itself. We never should have gone into Iraq, mainly because it was done under false pretenses. It is just ridiculous, but the left does not attack Bush the same way that the right attacks Obama. I have had to listen to republicans talk today about Obama's speech last night, and you would not believe how just plain dumb these people were. Someone actually said that not only is Obama not a US citizen, but his wife isn't either. I mean can the right get any more moronic?
