Senator Feinstein tells CIA director to #ReadTheReport

Senate Intelligence Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (C), a Democrat from California, speaks to reporters about the committee's report on CIA interrogations at the US Capitol in Washington, DC, December 9, 2014As CIA chief John Brennan defended the spy agency’s interrogation program for terror suspects Thursday, a senior senator whose committee published a damning report on the practice contested his claims. Senate Intelligence Committee chair Dianne Feinstein’s staff repeatedly used the hashtag #ReadTheReport on the senator’s Twitter feed during Brennan’s rare press conference broadcast live from CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Brennan said it was “unknowable” whether key information from suspects subjected to so-called enhanced interrogation techniques (EITs), which critics have equated to torture, could have been obtained through other methods. The senator’s office said she watched the press conference on television while her staff provided facts via Twitter.
