Cheney ordered CIA to hide plan

#1
Is this a sign of the gloves coming off in relation to the actions of the former US Administration?

So, inside the CIA and kept secret from Congress for eight years.

Any thoughts on how this will play out?

The head of the CIA has accused former US Vice-President Dick Cheney of concealing an intelligence programme from Congress, a top US senator says.

The existence of the programme, set up after 9/11, was hidden for eight years and even now its nature is not known.

Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein confirmed CIA chief Leon Panetta told Congressional committees he had abandoned the project on hearing of it.

He said that Mr Cheney was behind the secrecy, Sen Feinstein said.

There has been no comment from Mr Cheney.

Why am I reminded of the scene from The Bourne Supremacy, where Brian Cox explains what Treadstone was...

"It was a kill-squad. Black on black. Noone wants to know about Treadstone." :twisted:

Maybe its related to domestic "subversion" - there was a lot of talk about monitoring library book choices (etc) around the time the ridiculous "Patriot Act" was passed.
