Senate panel votes to release CIA interrogation report

The 6,300-page report of the Bush-era program, which has triggered extraordinary tensions between the Central Intelligence Agency and its congressional overseers, details one of the most unsavory periods in the agency’s history. “The purpose of this review was to uncover the facts behind this secret program, and the results were shocking,” committee chair Senator Dianne Feinstein said after the 11-3 vote. The vote allows Feinstein to send the 400-page executive summary and key recommendations to the White House, which said Obama wants the declassification “completed as expeditiously as possible.”
