Senators Demand Report On Interrogations From CIA

Members of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday demanded that the CIA share a report on its post-9/11 interrogation practices, according to the New York Times

The committee performed a three year investigation into how the CIA conducted interrogations in secret prisons, which found that the CIA’s practices were brutal and produced little intelligence, according to the Times. The CIA publicly rebutted the Senate’s report, but Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) claims that the agency conducted its own investigation that is similarly critical of its interrogation practices.

“If this is true,” Udall said during a Tuesday hearing, “this raises fundamental questions about why a review the C.I.A. conducted internally years ago — and never provided to the committee — is so different from the C.I.A.’s formal response to the committee study.”

A spokesman for the CIA, Dean Boyd, said that the agency will work with the committee on sharing the report.

“CIA and committee staff have had extensive dialogue on this issue, and the agency is prepared to work with the committee to determine the best way forward on potential declassification,” Boyd said.

The Intelligence Committee will vote soon on its own report, which will then go through the process of declassification, according to the Times.
