CIA trying to restore reputation through social networks

The CIA is trying at all cost to clear its name which was damaged after a series of sensational revelations, RT reports. CIA Director John Brennan says that he is disturbed by the manner in which the media describe his department because, in his opinion, they severely falsify information.

Earlier this month, the CIA started official pages on Facebook and Twitter. CIA representatives in the microblog service cracked a lame joke saying that they cannot either confirm or contradict the fact that this is their first twit.

After the 9/11 terrorist act, high hopes were put on the CIA, RT reports. However, after the misinformation about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, US drone attacks against civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as some other indiscreet steps the CIA’s reputation was tarnished.
