WASHINGTON - For President Barack Obama, a public spat between his trusted ally at the CIA and a loyal Democratic senator has put into sharp focus his complicated role in managing the post-Sept. 11 anti-terror programs he inherited from George W. Bush.
WASHINGTON - The top CIA lawyer accused by the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee of trying to intimidate the panel over its investigation into secret prisons and brutal interrogations of terrorism suspects was himself involved in the controversial programs, cited more than 1,600 times in the Senate's unpublished investigative report, according to the panel's chairwoman, Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
WASHINGTON - Senators accuse the CIA of spying on their work. The CIA accuses a Senate panel of stealing its documents. It's "a defining moment" that will determine whether Congress can fulfill its duty to watch over the nation's spy agencies, says Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein.
