Leaked Senate torture report conclusions say program ‘far worse’ than Congress knew


In early April, the Senate Intelligence Committee voted to declassify nearly 500 pages of a report on enhanced interrogation, frequently characterized as torture, under the George W. Bush administration. Now, McClatchy has obtained and published a two-page list of findings, confirming that the Senate believes the CIA impeded legal oversight, went beyond limits set by the Department of Justice, and misrepresented the program, which the report describes as far more brutal than previously known. Committee chair Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has previously condemned the program as a stain on our history that must never again be allowed to happen, even accusing the CIA of breaking into Senate computers to erase evidence. The CIAs use of enhanced interrogation techniques was brutal and far worse than the agency communicated to policymakers, says one statement.
