Feinstein: CIA concealment may have broken the law

Feinstein: CIA concealment may have broken the law
2 hrs 10 mins ago

WASHINGTON – The chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee says the Bush administration may have broken the law if it ordered the CIA to conceal the existence of a counterterrorism program.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein says that CIA Director Leon Panetta told senators last month that Dick Cheney as vice president had ordered the program not be disclosed to Congress.

Feinstein says that Congress was kept in the dark and that, in her words, "that's something that should never, ever happen again."

The New York Times reported that the CIA withheld information for eight years about a secret counter-terrorism program on direct orders from Cheney.

The California Democrat spoke on "Fox News Sunday."
