The Senate Intelligence Committee Report On Torture
“The most extensive review of U.S. intelligence-gathering tactics in generations.” –Los Angeles Times Meticulously formatted, this is a highly readable edition of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation of Central Intelligence Agency interrogation and detention programs launched in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Based on over six million internal CIA documents, the report details secret prisons — like the one in Thailand run by Gina Haspel, currently nominated to be Donald Trump’s Deputy Secretary of State — prisoner deaths, interrogation practices, and cooperation with other foreign and domestic agencies. It also examines charges that the CIA deceived elected officials and governmental overseers about the extent and legality of its operations. Over five years in the making, and withheld from public view since its declassification in April, 2014, this is the full summary report as finally released by the United States government on December 9th, 2014.
