CIA launches internal investigation into whether CIA broke law in spying on Muslims with NYPD

New CIA director David Petraeus says the agency has launched an internal investigation into whether it broke the law by closely cooperating with the New York City police department, to spy on Muslims. Good to know that the CIA will let us know whether the CIA broke the law.

[T]he agency's inspector general began investigating at the request of acting director Michael Morell, before Petraeus took office just over a week ago. The agency's unprecedented cooperation with the NYPD was the subject of an eight-month investigation by The Associated Press.

At a congressional hearing Tuesday, Petraeus said there is a CIA adviser at the police department and the CIA wants "to make sure we are doing the right thing."
