Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has requested that the Senate sergeant-at-arms conduct a forensic evaluation of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s computers to determine how documents at the heart of a standoff with the CIA were obtained.
Reid said he hoped the sergeant-at-arms, Terrance Gainer, could figure out how the CIA’s internal “Panetta review” of its Bush-era interrogation program wound up on the Intelligence Committee’s computer network.
The thing about the Panetta Report is not what it says, but how bad what it says is.
We can be sure about one thing: The Obama White House has covered up the Bush presidency’s role in the torture program for years. Specifically, from 2009 to 2012, the administration went to extraordinary lengths to keep a single short phrase, describing President Bush’s authorization of the torture program, secret.
When the high moral ground is a volcano…
America, we hardly knew ya.
