CIA spied on Senate panel

Washington, July 31 (Reuters): The CIA said today its director had apologised to leaders of the US Senate Intelligence Committee for monitoring computers that committee investigators were using as they looked into the CIA’s use of interrogation and secret prisons.

In a statement, CIA spokesman Dean Boyd said the agency’s inspector general had determined that “some CIA employees acted in a manner inconsistent” with an understanding between the agency and the Senate panel.

Boyd said CIA Director John Brennan had informed Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Senate committee's chair, and its senior Republican, Senator Saxby Chambliss, of the finding and apologised.
