CIA and Domestic Spying--Via NYPD

Can't be too shocked anymore with this stuff, but still quite a report tonight from Charlie Savage at NYT.  Remember, all CIA surveillance supposedly banned in USA.
Four CIA officers were embedded with the New York Police Department in the decade after Sept. 11, 2001, including one official who helped conduct surveillance operations in the United States, according to a newly disclosed C.I.A. inspector general’s report.
That officer believed there were “no limitations” on his activities, the report said, because he was on an unpaid leave of absence, and thus exempt from the prohibition against domestic spying by members of the C.I.A.
Another embedded C.I.A. analyst — who was on its payroll — said he was given “unfiltered” police reports that included information unrelated to foreign intelligence, the C.I.A. report said.
