CIA Director John Brennan's recent actions are unacceptable. An Inspector General's report confirms what has already been reported in the media—the CIA spied on its Senate overseers and made false claims to the DOJ against Senate staffers investigating the agency's use of torture.

It's clear now that Mr. Brennan was either clueless about what was going on in his agency or he outright lied to the Senate about it. His belated, private apology and his referral of the matter to an internal CIA “accountability board” are not an adequate response.

Director Brennan lost Congress’ and the public’s trust when the CIA illegally read the communications of Senate staff—not to mention violating the system of checks and balances at the heart of our democracy.

Tell President Obama that John Brennan has to go.

See the letter POGO and other groups sent to President Obama.

Dear President Obama,

Under John Brennan's direction, the CIA spied on Senate staffers and made false claims to the Department of Justice. Director Brennan has lost Congress' and the public’s trust, and he must be held accountable. I urge you to ask for Director Brennan's resignation immediately.

CIA Director John Brennan needs to be fired because he simply does not understand that torture is wrong AND illegal.

What happened to closing Gitmo? What is it that changed you so much from the man we voted for? Where is your decency? Where is greater transparency in Government. When did the CIA become untouchable? We did not elect him. You can do something about this. Why do you keep this thug in office?

The man spied on Congress And lied to Congress about it; yet is not held accountable, yet responsible members of society are punished when they report wrongdoings. Why is this?
