Senate committee report on CIA interrogations

Committee Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation Program

A long-delayed study finds that the CIA’s bru­tal in­ter­rog­a­tion pro­gram lost track of cap­tives, led to false con­fes­sions and fab­ric­ated in­form­a­tion, and pro­duced no use­ful in­tel­li­gence about im­min­ent ter­ror­ist at­tacks. The 499-page ex­ec­ut­ive sum­mary re­leased Tues­day by the Sen­ate In­tel­li­gence Com­mit­tee con­tains pre­vi­ously un­known de­tails so dis­turb­ing and so graph­ic that the State De­part­ment has warned U.S. em­bassies over­seas to pre­pare for pos­sible protests around the globe.
