Senate Holds Hearing On Lessons Learned From Boston Marathon Bombings

After hacking controversy, CIA watchdog resigns

Central Intelligence Agency Inspector General David Buckley testifies before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee in Washington, DC, on April 30, 2014The CIA’s inspector general will resign this month but US officials said Monday his departure is not related to his finding last year that the spy agency hacked into computers used by Senate aides. The agency’s internal watchdog, David Buckley, will be stepping down on January 31, and his move “has been in the works for months,” CIA spokesman Christopher White told AFP. Buckley found himself in the middle of a tense confrontation last year between the Central Intelligence Agency and the Senate Intelligence Committee over a report by lawmakers into the spy service’s use of torture over the past decade. Buckley’s office, assigned the task of auditing and investigating possible agency wrongdoing, concluded in July that CIA employees had secretly gained access to computers used by Senate intelligence committee staff members.
