Senate staffers slipped secret CIA documents from agency’s headquarters

 WASHINGTON — Congressional aides involved in preparing the Senate Intelligence Committee’s unreleased study of the CIA’s secret interrogation and detention program walked out of the spy agency’s fortress-like headquarters with classified documents that the CIA contended they weren’t authorized to have, McClatchy has learned.

After the CIA confronted the panel in January about the removal of the material last fall, panel staff concluded that the agency had monitored computers they’d been given to use in a high-security research room at the CIA campus in Langley, Va., a McClatchy investigation found.

It remained unclear Wednesday if the monitoring, the unauthorized removal of classified material or another matter were the subject of a recent CIA request to the Justice Department for an investigation into alleged malfeasance in connection with the committee’s top-secret study.

This is crazy. So the staffers were trying to prove they were being spied on by walking out with docs?

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

I guess they proved the CIA hasn't quite mastered security in its own building.

Geez.  the Keystone Kops had nothing on this bunch.  Let's do this and be done with it:  prosecute and convict the Senate staffers of illegally removing sensitive documents from the CIA and prosecute and convict the CIA staffers for illicit monitoring of the computers used by the staff.

In other words, chuck 'em all in the pokey and move on.
