On Tuesday’s broadcast of “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel, former CIA Deputy Director Jose Rodriguez, the former director of the National Clandestine Service, slammed the release of the Senate CIA torture report Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the current chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“I mean, I think it’s a very dark day for the CIA. I think the CIA’s been thrown under the bus. And you know, the CIA is the country’s paramount intelligence service, and it has a very important mission, and the mission is to protect American interests, to protect the homeland, to safeguard American lives, and it needs to be held accountable when it screws up,” Rodriguez said. “You know, there’s a lot of moving parts and a lot of risk taken when we do very complex counterterrorism covert action. In this case, I believe that, you know, we’ve been thrown under the bus, and the politicians are playing political football with the CIA.”
