In an extraordinary public accusation, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee declared on Tuesday that the CIA interfered with and then tried to intimidate a congressional investigation into the agency's possible use of torture in terror probes during the Bush administration.
The CIA clandestinely removed documents and searched a computer network set up for lawmakers, said Sen.
The Senate report at the center of the heated public dispute between Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein and the CIA is a detailed investigation of the agency's rendition, detention and interrogation program that the George W. Bush administration started after 9/11 and which ended in 2009.
— Feinstein, D-Calif., has said the program's abuses included "beating a detainee in Afghanistan, who later died in custody, with a heavy flashlight; threatening a detainee with a handgun and a power drill; staging a mock execution; threatening to kill a detainee's family; choking a detainee to the point of unconsciousness" and using the interrogation technique known as waterboarding in ways the CIA's legal counsel had not authorized.
The Vietnamese creator of Flappy Bird says he’s thinking of resurrecting the smash-hit free game that he abruptly took offline a month ago — albeit with a warning about its addictive qualities.
In his first interview since he pulled the app from the Apple and Android app stores, citing the pressure its success put on his “simple life,” Nguyen Ha Dong told Rolling Stone magazine he now feels a sense of “relief.”
But asked if Flappy Bird will ever fly again on mobile devices, Nguyen responded: “I’m considering it.”
While he is not working on a new version, he said any sequel would come with a warning to users to “please take a break.”
With its 2D retro-style graphics, Flappy Bird — in which gamers try to direct a flying bird between oncoming sets of pipes without touching them — was wildly popular.
When Nguyen, 28, announced on Twitter that he was about to take it down, 10 million people downloaded it in just 22 hours — and one month on, clone versions still pop up.
Nguyen told Rolling Stone he was upset not only by the fame that surrounded his Flappy Bird success, but also by messages from people telling him how the game caused them to flunk exams and lose jobs.
Now enjoying a quieter life, he told Rolling Stone he is busy creating other games, including a cowboy-themed shooter, a vertical flying game and an “action chess game” — one of which he will release this month.
Vietnam has a small but thriving software and games development sector and the global publicity surrounding Flappy Bird is likely to help it grow, technology experts have said.
Rolling Stone posted its interview with Nguyen on its website Tuesday ahead of publication in its March 27 issue.

The leader of an Alabama Tea Party contingent told state lawmakers on Tuesday that the “Common Core” educational curriculum system was an attempt to undermine Christianity by normalizing homosexuality, Right Wing Watch reported.
“We don’t want our children to be taught to be anti-Christian, anti-Catholic and anti-American,” Barbour County Tea Party leader Terry Batton said.
