The Senate Intelligence Committee and the Obama administration are still going back and forth about what material should be included in the release of the terror report.


The committee had hoped to release its 600-page summary of the report on the Central Intelligence Agency’s use of tactics many label as “torture” before Congress left for its August recess, a target that was pushed to September as discussions continued.

On Monday, as Congress returned from its five-week break, Senator Dianne Feinstein said the document would not be released this week, and might not come out before lawmakers leave later this month to campaign for the Nov. 4 congressional elections.

That would push its release to mid-November at the earliest…

The roughly 600-page document that would be released is a summary of a much longer committee narrative that will remain secret indefinitely.

In August, officials familiar with the report said it will conclude that the CIA’s use of harsh interrogation after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks yielded no critical intelligence on terrorist plots that could not have been obtained through non-coercive methods.[su_csky_ad]

    Is someone going to be charged?

      don’t be silly. It’s a gesture and no one except maybe the dog will be charged.

    for any one of them who are against the release – they should be voted against or have their official liar hat taken away – the/a state has no right to keep anything from the people who created it.

      Yes, indeed.

      If faux dems like Feinstein are pushing for delaying the release, I suspect it has something to do with the fact that they were complicit with the Bush admin in support of the torture program.

    We did it, we need to own it. Release the entire thing and allow us to use it as a catalyst for change.
