Judges are deciding whether to release full Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA interrogation practices that include torture.
The ACLU is asking two D.C. Circuit appeals court judges to release the 6,963-page report under the Freedom of Information Act, U.S. News & World Report writes.
An executive summary of the report was released with redactions in 2014, showing how terrorism suspects were subjected to sleep deprivation, waterboarding and a procedure known as rectal feeding.
The ACLU argues that the full report has tremendous public value because it would help ensure the harsh tactics are never again used.
A lower court refused to order the release of the documents.
