Cheney Is Linked to Concealment of C.I.A. Project

Cheney Is Linked to Concealment of C.I.A. Project

This link is to a New York Times article written today. Apparently Cheney was ordering the C.I.A. to withhold information from Congress regarding an unidentified program. The program was started in the months after 9/11, but did not involve the interrogation program or domestic intelligence activity. While this story is probably more dramatic than it should be, because of the status of Bush, Cheney and current “enhanced interrogation” methods, it has serious implications for Congress. Senators and Representatives will always be held responsible for failed policies, even when they do not know about it. There is no easy solution to this problem because of confidentiality, but it will be interesting to see if the C.I.A. and their relationship with Congress changes in light of these events. It will also be interesting to see the spin this story gets from major media outlets in the coming days.
