The NSA has been getting a whole lot of attention lately for it's spying techniques, but the CIA just stole the spotlight, even if just for a little while.

CIA Director John Brennen is apologizing for improper spying by CIA officials on Senators who sit on the Senate Intelligence Committee. More from the Associated Press:

CIA Director John Brennan is apologizing to Senate intelligence committee leaders after his inspector general found that CIA employees acted improperly when the CIA searched Senate computers earlier this year.

The controversy is centered on an investigation of the CIA’s interrogation and detention practices after the 9/11 attacks.


Chairwoman of the Committee Dianne Feinstein talked about spying allegations back in May. It is unclear if the Department of Justice will prosecute over the hacking.
