U. S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D) W. Va. has high praise for former CIA Director Leon Panetta, but harsh words for other CIA Directors he's known.  In discussing the torture report released last week, Rockefeller tells the story of how even the CIA tried to spy on the Senate Intelligence Committee during its investigation of interrogation tactics.  In the reaction to the report's release, the Senator has been accused of giving tacit approval to CIA tactics because he did not object.
