WASHINGTON, March 20 U.S. Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid issued a strong defense on Thursday of Senator Dianne
Feinstein, who heads the Senate Intelligence Committee, in a
dispute in which the committee and the CIA each allege they were
spied upon by the other.
Reid, in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, called
the Central Intelligence Agency's access to the Senate panel's
computer network a "serious breach" and "indefensible." He said
he would begin a forensic examination of computers assigned for
exclusive use by Senate Intelligence.
