Are CIA Cyber-Spooks Hacking Americans’ Computers?

At Wednesday’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, titled “Global Security Threats,” Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Mark Udall (D-Colo.) hinted that CIA agents might be engaging in abusive cyber operations against Americans. And CIA Director John Brennan did little to dispel the notion.

At the hearing, Wyden asked Brennan point-blank whether CIA activities are covered by the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), which prohibits hacking people’s computers. Brennan shrugged off the question, saying that he wasn’t familiar enough with the law to answer. Udall followed up by demanding that Brennan assure the committee that the “CIA does not conduct domestic spying and searches in violation of Executive Order 12333,” which “prohibits the CIA from engaging in domestic spying and searches of U.S. citizens within our borders.” Brennan said only that “the CIA follows the letter and spirit of the law … in terms of its responsibilities to collect intelligence that will keep this country safe.”
