CIA cannot be exempt from scrutiny of Congress

There is an ongoing struggle between the Congress of the United States and the Central Intelligence Agency. Congress does not believe the CIA has been totally forthcoming in two separate investigations – from the Democrats’ standpoint, enhanced interrogation, and the questions surrounding Benghazi from the Republican point of view. Up to now, the CIA has refused further disclosures and declassification of certain aspects of its operations.

In the 1920s, an organization euphemistically called Protection Squadron, aka the SS, went without much notice by the people and their legislators. The SS ended up taking over the lives of the people of Germany.

It is my impression that no American governmental agency is above the scrutiny of, as well as full and complete disclosure to, the Congress, and especially all select committees.

Or is it?
