During the last year, The National Security Agency has faced world wide condemnation on their eavesdropping, wiretapping or just good old fashioned spying. Evan after the shock of Edward Snowden's revelations had sunk in, Senator Dianne Feinstein of Ca. fiercely defended the NSA and their ability to collect data from Americans phone calls. .
Tuesday morning, chairwoman Feinstein of California took to the Senate floor to “reluctantly” detail years’ worth of internal battles to investigate the agency’s “un-American, brutal program of detention and interrogation”.
Without going too deep into the details, it’s all about a Senate intelligence committee ongoing investigation on the use of torture by CIA officers back in 2005 and who ordered it. Senate Staffers were given access to documents at contractor-run CIA facilities. The CIA in turn monitored the computers in which the Senate Staffers were using to determine how much they knew.
