US lawmakers to vote on secret CIA interrogation report

The US Capitol in Washington, DC, on March 11, 2014A US Senate committee will vote next week on whether to declassify its report on a CIA interrogation program, potentially shedding light on some of the most objectionable tactics of America’s war on terror. Disputes over the 6,300-page review and the years-long research conducted by Senate Intelligence Committee staff have led to a rift between the Central Intelligence Agency and Senator Dianne Feinstein, who heads the panel. Feinstein wants to declassify the 400-page summary of the report, which critics of CIA interrogation policies have dubbed the torture report, as well as its key findings and conclusions. Senate Democrat John Rockefeller, who avidly supports releasing the entire report with minimal redactions, said there was sufficient support among committee members for Feinstein’s proposal.
