Nothing to see here

Well, then! Nothing to worry about:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The CIA says its inspector general has found nothing wrong with the spy agency’s close partnership with the New York City Police Department.

The inspector general concluded that no laws were broken and no evidence exists that the CIA was conducting forbidden domestic spying.

The inspector general decided to do a preliminary investigation after a series of stories by The Associated Press revealed how, after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks the CIA helped the NYPD build domestic intelligence programs that were used to spy on Muslims.

The revelations troubled some members of Congress and even prompted the U.S. director of national intelligence, James Clapper, to remark that it did not look good for the CIA to be involved with any city police department.

The close NYPD-CIA relationship continues.

  1. Having grown up during 60’s assassinations, I’ve always had a . . . healthy skepticism about government agency pronouncements. But now during the self-proclaimed transparency of the Obama administration, it’s come to the point where my first assumption anymore is that they’re lying through their teeth.
