Democrats blame CIA for torture.

senate intel committeeHere is the U.S Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s retiring from briefing following the release of report on the CIA’s “Detention and Interrogation Program”.  Ezra Levant from Sun News gives a very accurate overview of the event.

Here is a link to a PDF of the report.

  • As far as I can tell – nothing is new – except for the spin by the Democrats.  Moving from “about 100 terror suspects” to “119 detainee spread over dozens of black sites around the world – including Gitmo” is hardly “inaccurate” given the problem.   A definition of “inaccurate”in this case would be an order of magnitude – twice, thrice or more.  Twenty?  Come on.
  • Formerly tortured Vietnam Vet Senator John McCain closely monitored these interrogation techniques and was briefed on their progress.  He disagreed with Sen. Diane Feinstein’s partisan characterization of the report.
  • Recall that their ISIS opponents “enhanced interrogation techniques” often ends up with the subject dead.
  • We shall see this report used to help advance Omar Khadr case in Canada against the government.
