Cheney's CIA Secret Anti-Terror Program

Monday, July 13, 2009

Former Vice President Dick Cheney ordered the CIA to withhold information from Congress for eight years regarding a secret counter-terrorism program. C.I.A. director Leon Panetta told the Senate and House intelligence committees back in June about this and immediately put an end to the program. The program never became fully operational but details of it still remain classified. Joining The Takeaway is The New York Times National Security Reporter, Scott Shane.
