Let me get this straight, staff members of the Senate Intelligence Committee stole documents from the CIA?

Talk about intrigue. This story is amazing.

Senate Intelligence Committee staffers, went to a secret undisclosed location, used CIA computers and then printed off and absconded with information about the CIA’s terrorist interrogation program.

Man —

U.S. officials said the network set up under Panetta included three distinct areas, each sealed off by a firewall — one accessible only to the committee, one exclusively for the CIA, and a shared space in the center where the agency could put records it wanted to share.

“The firewall was breached,” said a U.S. official briefed on the matter. “They figured out a work-around.”

If true, that would represent an embarrassing lapse in security in the computer system assembled by the agency.

Again, Senate staff members basically hacked a CIA computer database like a team of well-organized spies to obtain incredible valuable and potentially damaging information. And evidently, all this evidence is now sitting in a safe in the Hart Senate Office Building. Amazing.
