CIA cites officers for harassment
(06-10 13:28)

The CIA is cracking down on workplace harassment, but some employees don't think the agency is doing enough.
An internal CIA document obtained by The Associated Press says 15 CIA employees were found to have committed sexual, racial or other harassment last year. That included a supervisor who was removed from the job after engaging in quote, "bullying, hostile behavior,'' and one operative who was sent home from an overseas post for inappropriately touching female colleagues.
CIA managers sent those details in a memo to the entire workforce a few weeks ago. They wanted to show how the agency is enforcing its zero-tolerance policy toward harassment. But the announcement sparked heated commentary in postings on the CIA's internal networks about whether those steps are enough. --AP
