CIA to Release Post-9/11 Torture Report From Senate Intelligence Committee
A long-awaited report from the Senate Intelligence Committee on CIA interrogation tactics, including torture, in the years after the Sept. 11 attack is expected to be released Tuesday.
The full report is estimated to be 6,000 pages long. A 600-page executive summary from the Democratic majority, led by committee chair Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, has been declassified after months of disputes between the committee and the CIA over redactions.
A Republican minority report is also set to be released, as well as a rebuttal from the CIA. Here’s a look at what’s ahead.
What’s in the report?
The report is expected to conclude that the CIA repeatedly tortured around 20 detainees after 9/11, including three by the simulated drowning tactic known as waterboarding. It is also expected to accuse the CIA of repeatedly lying to Congress, the White House and the public.
