Senate Report on CIA Interrogation

Yesterday the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence released its "Study of the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program - Foreword, Findings, and Conclusions, and Executive Summary."  The study is linked from the Committee's home page:

The report's findings, that the harsh interrogation techniques used by the CIA right after the 9/11 attacks were "torture" and did not result in significant new intelligence, are quite controversial.  Many current and former CIA officials are defending the effectiveness of the methods that were used.  The report is 525 pages, heavily redacted, and includes graphic details about the techniques used by the CIA.  Simply reading it might well qualify as "torture."
