Senate Report Says CIA Misled Public on Interrogation Program
The intelligence agency misled Americans and the government for years on aspects of its brutal system of interrogations that yielded little helpful or significant information, according to a scathing report by the Senate Intelligence Committee. The 6,300-page document details dozens of interrogations involving painful techniques, including repeated dunkings of detainees in ice water in Afghanistan. The report determined that the CIA covered up details about the severity of techniques, inflated the importance of plots and prisoners, and took credit for information that was given before harsh tactics were used.
