I guess you conveniently missed the whole "CIA admitted lying to Congress SINCE 2001" part of the news story in your blind haste to blame Obama for Bush administration directives and deceptions.

Did Congress admit to deceiving the American public yet? Lol. Anyhow, this story is more BS. Panetta, a Dem appointee of BO and Clinton hanger on before that, says that the CIA lied...at least while those nasty Repubs were in charge. Noone will say what they lied about...but it was serious, trust them. More Dem propaganda, spread about by the New York Volkischer Beobachter.:)

This nation needs to move beyone President Bush. Obama has been in charge of 6 months and his CIA just admitted to lying to Congress. Obama should resign immediately and the CIA should be put under the control of the RNC. That is how you ensure the safety of America!

Why do you demoncrats constantly disparage "special" people. You and Obama should be ashamed. And Obama is in charge now. If his CIA lied to Congress, then he must take responsibility and resign immediately! A good leader takes responsibility for his weaknesses.

I will believe it when someone in the CIA goes to prison ... and this is just not another democrat bullshit lie ... My guess is the democrats will run with this to vindicate Pelosi ... and no investigation resulting in criminal charges of lying to congres will emerge ... anyone want to bet?
Democrats are 120% corrupt ... and destroying this country.

Panneta should be made to name names ... and heads should roll ... or this is just BS

Clinton was impeached for lying about an affair which occurred 10 years before his impeachment. Obama can easily be impeached for mismanaging his CIA and allowing them to admit to charges which shake confidence in our national security.

The facts are that under President Bush, perhaps our greatest President, the CIA did not admit to misleading Congress. Now that Panetta and Obama are in charge, the CIA is admitting to misleading Congress. Obama and Panetta should resign immediately for allowing the reputation of our nation to be impugned. I believe they should also be prosecuted for their illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan! Cheney would never have allowed this!
