Wonderful! The White House most likely ordered it. Always trying to put out fires with gasoline.

Now, you know this is just another “phony” scandal and there is not a smidgeon of truth in it. Period! You can bet the health care carrier that you like on it!

‘Brennan and the CIA contend that Senate staffers improperly got access to some sensitive agency documents as part of their review of the CIA detention and interrogation program, which took place at a secure agency building in northern Virginia.’

So…. The CIA allows Senate staffers to come their their (CIA) offices, to review documents. But somehow, these staffers got something they shouldn’t have…. Seems like the CIA didn’t have it’s ducks in a row in the first place… Didn’t the CIA prepare these documents that they were allowing the staffers to see in the first place? ? ? ?

Just how does one mediate in this situation?

Imagine, some William Ury going to Feinstein and saying: “I know, they maybe spied on you, but you know, that’s their job, and okay, raising hell is your job. So, be kind to each other.”

What they need is a referee. Brennan went below the belt, so Feinstein is going with bare fists.

And according to my free browser extension called Ghostery, I see 17 entities here on this page trying to track that I’m here.

I wonder if Reuters (gosh darn it the best reporting around) could find a way to keep these weirdos off the site? Our government is certainly being run by J Edgar Hoover-types who lie every time we ask them what they’re up to. Maybe Edward Snowden (the guy who didn’t boldface lie to Congress) isn’t so bad?
