WASHINGTON – A federal judge has ruled that CIA officials committed fraud to protect a former covert agent against an eavesdropping lawsuit and is considering sanctioning as many as six who have worked at the agency, including former CIA Director George Tenet.
According to court documents unsealed Monday, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth referred a CIA attorney, Jeffrey Yeates, for disciplinary action. Lamberth also denied the CIA's renewed efforts under the Obama administration to keep the case secret because of what he calls the agency's "diminished credibility" and the "twisted history" in the case.
Are we OK with them acting this way on a regular basis? Should something be done? Or is this partly what we expect from them??
No. It was awful/. They should have to disband OR tell us, the public, everything they do and all the information they get, and they should have to warn each and every possible terrorist that they are bugging theirphone and allow the possible terrorist to file a lawsuit preventing the surveillance before they are allowed to bug their phones. What else, should we go ahead and make copies of our nuclear facilities so that they have an easier time gaining access? This is stupid. They HAVE TO DO THINGS WITRHOUT TELLING US! Does that suck for some people. YES. Is it keeping my babies safe....YES. We haven't been attacked in 8 years. Why the hell is Bush blamed for everything from the economy to NATURAL DISASTERS but NOT given credit for THIS!
