news- Feinstein Says Law May Have Been Broken

"July 13, 2009
By MARIA NEWMAN

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence
Committee, said on Sunday that the Bush administration may have broken
the law if the Central Intelligence Agency concealed a covert spy
program from Congress.

The New York Times reported on Sunday that the agency's current
director, Leon E. Panetta, had told the Senate and House intelligence
committees that the C.I.A. withheld the information about a secret
counterterrorism program on direct orders from then Vice President Dick
Cheney."
