Senate Committee Report on CIA Interrogations Approved

On December 13, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence adopted a roughly 6,000-page report that reviews the Central Intelligence Agency’s detention and interrogation program as a part of U.S. counterterrorism efforts following the attacks of September 11, 2001.  Republican Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine joined the committee’s Democrats in voting to accept the report, and Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) gave it a strong endorsement.  In a statement following the vote, TCP President Virginia Sloan lauded the committee’s action as an important first step in informing the American people about the acts that were carried out in their name.  She called for the declassification and release of the report, and also highlighted the upcoming release of TCP’s own report on detainee treatment.
