U.S. Senate report to suggest harsh CIA interrogations were unnecessary: officials

Foreshadowing the impending release of a report expected to suggest that the “enhanced” techniques were unnecessary and also to accuse some CIA officers of misleading Congress about the effectiveness of the program, President Barack Obama said on Friday that the CIA “tortured some folks.” He had banned the practices soon after taking office in 2009. Officials said the Senate Intelligence Committee was unlikely to release the report to the public without some additional review. The voluminous report does not state that the use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” – which included measures such as “waterboarding,” or simulated drowning, on captured al Qaeda militants – produced no information of value whatsoever, the officials said. The report will criticize some CIA officials by name, the officials said.
