I'm a tiny bit surprised that this story isn't getting major traction. In a just world, this would be a Watergate-level scandal. The NSA is small potatoes compared to this.

Has anyone but the C.I.A. asked if the Senate Committee illegally obtained that draft memo? It seems to me the C.I.A. aren't the only ones stealing classified info here.

It only serves to make the story that much funnier while Feinstein complains about it publicly.

They have a process for that, which does not involve sneaking into their computers and removing the information.

Gotta love hypocrites like this old biatch.
First she uses her influence to obtain a CCW and then makes it a part of her personal agenda to deny that same right to the 'little people'.
Then she votes for establishing the NSA and for ever increasing domestic spying and then she biatches when that same spying then targets the ruling elite.

I'm as opposed as anyone to the domestic surveillance regime.  But if true, the attempt to control by the branch of government responsible for ensuring the Agency is following the law by intimidation is many, many times more dangerous.

Removed, as in copied and deleted?  Or were they only copied?

I'm fairly new to this story.

Of course they're related, I didn't say they weren't.  The entire intelligence community is has been emboldened to disregard the Constitution.  However, the domestic surveillance program threatens certain civil liberties. An executive branch agency attempting to threaten a different co-equal branch threatens the very system of government that maintains all liberties.  They are at different orders of magnitude.

Well, I'd argue that the very system of government that maintains all liberties hasn't been doing a very good job of maintaining said liberties.

So the public revelation of this is a very, very good thing:  It'll force the pendulum to swing the other way (hopefully).  Just like the Church Committee hearings in the 1970's lead to the protections like the pre-9/11 version of FISA.
 
2014-03-11 02:01:33 PM
To be fair, many members of Congress deserve eavesdropping attention far more than the average Joe.  A bunch of Congress members have relationships with organizations that support domestic terrorism in the USA.  Like making gun purchases legal and easy for insane people so they can shoot up schools and kill unarmed people throughout the nation.  Or organizations which support bombing abortion clinics and assassinating physicians who perform abortion.

I'd guess members of Congress who support domestic terror groups run a much higher percentage than the population at large.

Throwing a dart takes a modicum of preparation before entering the booth (dart and sample ballot) and then a minimal amount of cognitive effort (remembering where the darts landed). It also displays, albeit minimally, initiative. Therefore, it is light years better than straight ticket voting.

It also displays, albeit minimally, initiative. Therefore, it is light years better than straight ticket voting.


Good point.

Seconded. That's Dianne "I'm angry because I'm the chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and this shouldn't happen to me" Feinstein. She gives no farks about citizen rights and never has. She is pissed because she wasn't exempt.

You understand that this has nothing to do with her personally being spied on, right?


You are correct; Senator Feinstein is not so self-centered as to believe herself the only individual in the country who should be exempt from spying operations.

She believes that anyone in the privileged position of the United States Congress should be immune to surveillance. Being spied upon is for dirty peasants, not for prominent politicians.

pissnmoan: To be fair, many members of Congress deserve eavesdropping attention far more than the average Joe.  A bunch of Congress members have relationships with organizations that support domestic terrorism in the USA.  Like making gun purchases legal and easy for insane people so they can shoot up schools and kill unarmed people throughout the nation.  Or organizations which support bombing abortion clinics and assassinating physicians who perform abortion.

I'd guess members of Congress who support domestic terror groups run a much higher percentage than the population at large.


Still, that's all the jurisdiction of the FBI.

Not that I want to defend ever-creeping surveillance, but they didn't snoop through the senators' computers (at least not in this case). They were CIA computers held at a CIA site administered by CIA techs. Are we seriously going to say that the CIA should be denied access to their own property? I'm not saying the motive behind removing/changing the data isn't wrong, but that doesn't make DiFi right.

Senator Feinstein has established a history of opposing civil liberties, while simultaneously enjoying those liberties herself. Your defense of her is not likely to entice her to engage in sexual intercourse with you.

I looked at this the same way you do until i read the transcripts of Feinstein's comments:

Per an exchange of letters in 2009, then-Vice Chairman Bond, then-Director Panetta, and I agreed in an exchange of letters that the CIA was to provide a "stand-alone computer system" with a "network drive" "segregated from CIA networks" for the committee that would only be accessed by information technology personnel at the CIA-who would "not be permitted to" "share information from the system with other [CIA] personnel, except as otherwise authorized by the committee."

So it's not like they just went down to Langley and logged in to any old computer. They wanted to do it off-site, and only agreed to do it on-site after the CIA took steps to ensure that they wouldn't do what they eventually did.

If Feinstein's account is accurate, and the order to access the system and erase information didn't come from the President, then some heads need to roll at the CIA.

Actually considering the computers were the CIAs I am not so sure what DiFi is being pissy about. She is mad that they search computers that belong to the CIA. So the CIA searched CIA property on loan to DiFi and her committee. So it isn't OMG they broke in to our computers !!!!!. It is they searched computers for illegal documents that belonged to them. And notice that DiFi isn't all upset. She is upset she didn't get an apology. So 1) she helped create this lawlessness and has no issue when directed at the US and enriching her family 2) she isn't even upset that they did it. She just wanted them to say sorry.

This falls right in to their wheel house. CIA says the congress people should not have had access to document X. These are the same folks Difi and others who tell government workers that they should avoid wikileaks and other sites as they do not have clearance to view such things. How is this any different than the US government tapping journalists phones to determine the leak of classified material ? There is the big question of how the committee obtained the document. They were not supposed to be in possession of it, if the CIA transferred it on their own computers, are they not obligated to act so that the document doesn't fall in to UN-authorized hands ?

the argument as I understand it is that the document was never supposed to be transferred to them in the first place so the CIA went to see if they transferred it by mistake. If that was the case and they were acting to "secure" data that wasn't supposed to have been given to the committee. I don't see what the problem is ?

How is it any different than trying to "secure" flash drives that Greenwalds husband was traveling with ? After all this document most certainly falls under national security. So what if the oversight committee obtained illegal information that was still classified at the highest levels ? That they were not cleared to see ? They don't just get to see classified material, they have made oaths and pledges about what they are allowed to access. If they were given material that was classified or not for them they have an obligation to return that material to its rightful owners.

See how all of their tired and BS arguments about secrecy and privileged access can be turned around on them ? Funny how that works. Perhaps the NSA / CIA should go about destroying DiFi's reputation now that the see her as a "radicalizer"

And every time someone espouses anything relating to partisanship some oligarch on a private island is laughing his ass off.

Voting for either side of the aisle is pointless. Thinking one is better than the other even more so.

...in violation of the agreement they made with the body that is supposed to oversee their activities.

I understand the need to keep classified information under wraps, but once it gets out you can't just turn our system of government on its head to get it back.

Dancin_In_Anson: shtychkn: Herd to not vote straight ticket when one party is bat shiat crazy

Nabb1: Yes, the GOP is crazy, and many of their candidates are unworthy of a vote, BUT there are at times exceptions to those rules and it is sometimes worth actually looking past the party and assessing candidates on there own. Not to mention there are other parties out there.

Exactly...straight ticket voting is what begets us dried out fossils like this old biatch who doesn't have a clue in hell what life is like in the real world and uses that knowledge to rule (or govern if that's your reality) us.


teabaggers have changed the republican party and have not strayed from straight ticket voting. The way the change the party's is not in the general it is in the primary.

HotWingConspiracy: kindms: HotWingConspiracy: kindms: HotWingConspiracy: Dimensio: HotWingConspiracy: Wingchild: dittybopper: She was perfectly fine with the US government violating the constitutional rights of US citizens:

Seconded. That's Dianne "I'm angry because I'm the chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and this shouldn't happen to me" Feinstein. She gives no farks about citizen rights and never has. She is pissed because she wasn't exempt.

You understand that this has nothing to do with her personally being spied on, right?

You are correct; Senator Feinstein is not so self-centered as to believe herself the only individual in the country who should be exempt from spying operations.

She believes that anyone in the privileged position of the United States Congress should be immune to surveillance.

I'm not so sure she said that. I mean, this isn't metadata. The allegation is they were actively farking with an investigation. You're ok with this because OMG Feinstein?

Actually considering the computers were the CIAs I am not so sure what DiFi is being pissy about. She is mad that they search computers that belong to the CIA. So the CIA searched CIA property on loan to DiFi and her committee. So it isn't OMG they broke in to our computers !!!!!. It is they searched computers for illegal documents that belonged to them.

No, just no. And I'm not sure you understand how an investigation works. It doesn't at any point involve the people being investigated remotely blocking access to documents pertinent to the investigation.

the argument as I understand it is that the document was never supposed to be transferred to them in the first place so the CIA went to see if they transferred it by mistake. If that was the case and they were acting to "secure" data that wasn't supposed to have been given to the committee. I don't see what the problem is ?

How is it any different than trying to "secure" flash drives that Greenwalds husband was traveling with ? After all t ...


Just making the point that from the very words they use to suppress information when it suits DiFi etc can be used to justify just about anything. including coming up with very real and very persuasive reasons or arguments which give the CIA cover.

Look at all these BS responses from congress. I stand with DiFi that the CIA MAY have broken laws or MAY have done something inappropriate etc etc. These folks don't have the guts to call someone else out unless they perceive them to be outliers or of little means to defend themselves. Even the good guys and gals in congress don't have any balls to call a spade a spade and the real reason is that they have blurred the lines so badly they never know when those words are going to come home to roost just as they have for Diane

First she uses her influence to obtain a CCW and then makes it a part of her personal agenda to deny that same right to the 'little people'.
Then she votes for establishing the NSA and for ever increasing domestic spying and then she biatches when that same spying then targets the ruling elite.

I can't wait to dance on this old bag's grave.

A nice tidbit on the CCW of hers.  At one time, there were exactly two CCWs in the entire city of San Francisco.  They belonged to Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer - two of the loudest anti-gunners in all of Congress.

Side note.  I won't celebrate their deaths.  I just won't give a shiat.

Aaaaaannndd now we see what all the DiFi hate is really about.  Took longer than I expected.

Her tireless, hypocritical crusade against the Bill of Rights?


All of them?  Or just one in particular?  This may come as a shock to you, but a large number of us don't really consider gun totin' to be much of a civil right these days.  Certainly not enough to get all hot and bothered about.  And no, I don't buy the slippery slope arguments that all rights are somehow in grave jeopardy because we now have stricter rules and regulations than we did when the US was a sparsely populated agrarian society and guns were inaccurate single shot muskets that took 20 seconds to reload.  Or to put it another way: I'm just as worried about 2nd Amendment rights as I am about 3rd Amendment rights.

Now, Guantanamo Bay and the violations of habeous corpus, plus gov't abuse of the 4th Amendment and attempts to establish religious teachings in our schools - those are more concerning.  And frankly, for all their supposed wisdom, our Founding Fathers missed one of the biggest power groups or else severely underestimated its importance: wealth.  The concentration of wealth allows the few with direct access to politicians and control of the media and as such acts as an unchecked power player in our country.  And they certainly like to fan the flames about guns because like religion and gays, it makes for a good distraction to get people all riled up about while they quietly grab more and more wealth and the power that goes with it.

But hey, that's all just like my opinion man.  It's still a free country so you keep fighting for what you feel is right.  You'll just have to excuse the lot of us who don't think that particular fight is worth much.

Yeah, she's cool with violating our 2nd Amendment  just as long as she can keep her CCW permit.


Really? No one's gonna take this one? Diane Feinstein had previously carried a weapon when the New World Liberation Front was trying to assassinate her. There was a bomb planted outside her house and people were shooting out the windows in hour house. Almost NO ONE lives under this type of threat and I think it's pretty understandable that someone in that situation would want to carry a gun. That DOES NOT mean that is a good public policy for everyone to be carrying guns.

I think it was about the time that she was holding Harvey Milk as he bled to death that she decided that carrying a gun wasn't worth it. I think it was when she was identifying the bodies of George Moscone and Milk that she started to get some inspiration to lead for some meaningful gun control. Maybe.

Or you could just simplify it and call her a hypocrite, but don't you think you are leaving out 2 or 3 details?

What a horrible fake name, but I guess if the Lieberals can get Saddam's cousin Barrack "Barry" elected, you're brazen enough to insult the rest of us with such a stupid fake name. Wine Stine- how can Californians be so gullible?
 
2014-03-11 07:04:13 PM
You really need to familiarize yourself with the timeline of what all went on in this case first.

The TL;DR version is that one of the top officials involved with the CIA's torture program is going after the members of the Congressional Committee charged with overseeing the CIA and did not like them investigating his illegal actions.

what seemed to really set [Senator Feinstein] off was the CIA's counter-charge, made through acting CIA general counsel Robert Eatinger, that her staff had illegally accessed and removed the document.

"Our staff involved in this matter have the appropriate clearances, handled this sensitive material according to established procedures and practice to protect classified information, and were provided access to the Panetta Review by the CIA itself," she said.

"As a result, there is no legitimate reason to allege to the Justice Department that Senate staff may have committed a crime. I view the acting counsel general's referral as a potential effort to intimidate this staff, and I am not taking this lightly."

She added: "I should note that for most if not all of the CIA's detention and interrogation program, the now-acting general counsel was a lawyer in the CIA's counterterrorism center, the unit within which the CIA managed and carried out this program. From mid-2004 until the official termination of the detention and interrogation program in January 2009, he was the unit's chief lawyer. He is mentioned by name more than 1,600 times in our study.

"And now, this individual is sending a crimes report to the Department of Justice on the actions of Congressional staff - the same Congressional staff who researched and drafted a report that details how CIA officers, including the acting general counsel himself, provided inaccurate information to the Department of Justice about the program
."

It would be nice if the NSA revealed to the American public all the "dirt" they have on the the 535 members of Congress who are supposed to be working for us.  We'd be in a position to prosecute the crooks and to applaud the small group who actually do what they were sent there to do.

hasty ambush: [irregulartimes.com image 500x509]


He did all that.  The wiretaps are legal now.  Nobody has to bother with the national security letters to spy on someone.  And they're not tracking protesters specifically anymore, since they're covered by the whole "spying on everyone, everywhere, all the time" that goes on now.

Persnickety: OgreMagi: zepher: Gotta love hypocrites like this old biatch.
First she uses her influence to obtain a CCW and then makes it a part of her personal agenda to deny that same right to the 'little people'.
Then she votes for establishing the NSA and for ever increasing domestic spying and then she biatches when that same spying then targets the ruling elite.

I can't wait to dance on this old bag's grave.

A nice tidbit on the CCW of hers.  At one time, there were exactly two CCWs in the entire city of San Francisco.  They belonged to Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer - two of the loudest anti-gunners in all of Congress.

Side note.  I won't celebrate their deaths.  I just won't give a shiat.

Aaaaaannndd now we see what all the DiFi hate is really about.  Took longer than I expected.


It's about a whole lot more than is relevant for this thread.
She's funneled more money into her husband's and friend's companies than just about anyone to ever sit in Congress.

Clemkadidlefark: Has anyone asked .. "how does she know?"


Tinfoil hat time, Clem ... what if it's all a CIA plot?  Feinstein's political advisors could be trying to reposition her because she is getting so much flack for being too cozy with the intelligence community.  The summary of the report about torture was going to get released anyway.   Feinstein can try to re-establish some shred of bona fides with people who care about civil liberties by taking credit for the release of the report and leading this bogus slap-fight with CIA.

I try my best every time she's up for re-election.  Unfortunately, the majority of Californians obviously never pay attention to the shiat she does.
