In the CIA CIA informed and know where to go -- is this an agency that took power in -- itself. I think when you. If you combined. This story. At all appear -- that he.

And explain to new world there it was a and and I think -- wrong your recruitment. The Sunni community workers were given the job with two million documents. And and he. Did they take those documents out of the CIA to a secure area. The. The real disagreement here and I think we need to go back to explain how -- We -- doubtful that the NCAA required. Senate Intelligence Committee content specially designated site. You it's actually like computers. Do you documents. That the CIA provided an immediate response in the investigation. CIA detention and interrogation program. There that was done outside. Of the senate opposite. And -- senate specially designated as an investigative. At the port through these documents in one room with eight computers. And it would it was a -- -- Difficult setup for the best skaters -- -- it investigation -- years now what the disputed out. Is that somehow. And it is not known now. Document that the CIA did not want to provide the committee. And is down. Is that the that's another view which is the internal reviews. And CIA director Leah and order when he took over. The same -- That that review. I found its way into the computers -- that the senate staffers access to know the senate staffers. Recognize the value. Not only because it was. Summary at that point you know document that they were it true that because -- supported a lot in the. Inclusion that there investigation already and it. They recognize that this is a very significant that. And they were concerned. That. The CIA unit packed -- street get destroyed in the case -- -- interrogation that you noted over the objections of the bush White House and the VA general couple. That they felt that they needed to take steps to preserve that ensure that that the securities without. That they would -- the documents from that that actually actually printed. And the and they are now stored at the senate intelligence neighbors attacked restored. Our in our topic. And very secure location. On the security pact that is not an end in jeopardy but the CIA. Took that action. Interpreted that action -- as unlawful and that outlook spurred. This incident to justice department for criminal investigation. Now that it's Brinkley it's hurt and it is deeply troubling because the CIA official who actually made that world is just as the is this -- you will hear. Who was in charge of that -- here. Division believe the focus of the investigation. And was in fact mention in the senate. Reports. I'll call on that on the detention interrogation program more than 16100. And so we have this one individual who. Fine. Featured prominently in the senate report. It's taken extraordinary action and in what. Senator feinstein's. Interpreted as a clear attempt children in the days and the comedian to backing off its investigation. By referring there to the Justice Department and this is how this whole brouhaha. And we descended a committee uses in several working. On that won't CIA computer when they copied the documents to big endured there or did they take it does some undisclosed location. Now I I. I believe that they predicted that the facility because I don't think it would be capable of computer from the secure. You know what is the what is clear where -- -- stand on on in CIA used the document at. Privileged material and items that they do not apt to turn over -- -- The Senate Intelligence Committee in fact congress as a whole. Has never recognized. The kind of privilege that the CIA is urging the document and believes that they have. The authority and legal right to view and reduction. At the CIA. And -- in the course of greater oversight activities. And that Supreme Court has sided with congress on that issue -- not. The nick grange. -- When -- lawyers strange question. And if you of its citizens you in the insurgents and had committed. The crime news. Charged. By the CIA of the senate and the center of the CIA. We go to jail. How is it that these people or beyond prosecution. And often talent beyond in any kind of retribution -- through. Well I think it -- victory. Chains that -- -- no real accountability. Either at -- -- Andy and they accountability. For the activities. Our undertaken and that detention interrogation program -- about within the decade. I think the Obama administration came into that made that decision. That it was gonna end the practice -- But as a means of trying to move the country world. Would not -- And investigations.
