Early today the Senate declassified and made public the Senate Select Committee Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation Program (or, as some are calling it, the Bush Cheney CIA Torture Report). We know that many of you will be looking for the CIA torture methods report online, and so, we are giving it to you here.
The headlines are already screaming, depending on which newspaper or online publication you read. Obama, Bush teams battle over torture report says USA Today, while ThinkProgress.org explains “Why Dick Cheney Is Really Freaking Out About The New Torture Report.”
Both, however, quote former veep Dick Cheney as saying “What I keep hearing out there is they portray this as a rogue operation and the agency was way out of bounds and then they lied about it. I think that’s all a bunch of hooey. The program was authorized. The agency did not want to proceed without authorization, and it was also reviewed legally by the Justice Department before they undertook the program.”
“Bunch of hooey” is, by the way, a highly technical term in those circles.
But, you, learned and critically-thinking reader, want to determine for yourself just what is hooey, and what isn’t, and whether there are bunches of it or not.
So, here is the online copy of the Senate Select Committee Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation Program, as promised. All 525 pdf pages of it.
