A group of hackers who breached the Senate computer system earlier this week claimed responsibility for problems with the CIA's website today.

CIA spokesman Marie Harf said the agency is looking into the reports.

So much for hoping the CIA has the best and brightest.

Good grief. I just checked out the CIA site. That it includes links in the page footer to FLU.GOV, USA.GOV, and the NoFEAR Act says volumes about how far the CIA has fallen.

Poor reporting from the Daily Fail as usual. It wasn’t hacked, it was attacked with a denial of service.

Interesting you should mention that....I find it curious that most of the breaking news from the US, I find being reported from the UK first.

Sparse reporting on this story on the US. Meh.
