Senate Torture Report Condemns C.I.A. Interrogation Program

WASHINGTON — A scathing report released by the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday found that the Central Intelligence Agency routinely misled the White House and Congress about the information it obtained from the detention and interrogation of terrorism suspects, and that its methods were more brutal than the C.I.A. acknowledged either to Bush administration officials or to the public.

The long-delayed report, which took five years to produce and is based on more than six million internal agency documents, is a sweeping indictment of the C.I.A.’s operation and oversight of a program carried out by agency officials and contractors in secret prisons around the world in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. It also provides a macabre accounting of some of the grisliest techniques that the C.I.A. used to torture and imprison terrorism suspects.

  1. Yes, a report like this very well could spark violence against us here and abroad, as if we don’t have enough problems facing our country between ISIS, Ebola, and Russia. The US has to be very careful here not to bite off more than they can chew, lest we can’t protect our citizens. I am taking some precautions just in case:
    1.Having at least a months supply of food that does not spoil handy, such as canned goods and keep at least 50-100 gallons of fresh water if you can
    2 If there is a risk to you, keep life insurance on yourself (its only $15 a month online at Life Ant).
    3.You should coordinate a spot outside of major metropolitan areas where you can meet if people get separated and you need to escape populated spots.
    It’s all stuff that we should be doing anyway.
