New CIA director David Petraeus said at a congressional hearing today that the agency wants "to make sure we are doing the right thing" in reference to its association with the NYPD's surveillance of Muslim communities, so they've launched an internal review to determine whether or not they broke the law. An Associated Press investigation last month revealed the existence of the NYPD intelligence division's "Demographic Unit," which covertly monitored mosques and student groups for terrorist activity after 9/11 under the leadership of an ex-CIA operational deputy and with the knowledge of then-CIA director George Tenet. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said he does not believe American citizens had their privacy violated. [AP]
