CIA director Michael Hayden has ordered an inspection of the CIA’s inspector general. CIA staffers have been upset with the IG’s examination of the agency’s secret detention and interrogations programs. One agent, who wants to remain anonymous, asked, “Jeeze, if we can’t even rough these guys up a bit, how are we sposed to get secret information from them?”
CIA Inspector General John L. Helgerson is not standing still for this kind of treatment. The IG is going to investigate the CIA’s investigation of his department. It all gets very complicated.
