Senate report says

"A report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concludes that the CIA misled the government and the public about aspects of its brutal interrogation program for years — concealing details about the severity of its methods, overstating the significance of plots and prisoners, and taking credit for critical pieces of intelligence that detainees had in fact surrendered before they were subjected to harsh techniques.

The report, built around detailed chronologies of dozens of CIA detainees, documents a long-standing pattern of unsubstantiated claims as agency officials sought permission to use — and later tried to defend — excruciating interrogation methods that yielded little, if any, significant intelligence, according to U.S. officials who have reviewed the document.

“The CIA described [its program] repeatedly both to the Department of Justice and eventually to Congress as getting unique, otherwise unobtainable intelligence that helped disrupt terrorist plots and save thousands of lives,” said one U.S. official briefed on the report. “Was that actually true? The answer is no.”

Of course, the CIA denies this.

On the other hand, I find it easy to believe the CIA misled the government in order to gain new authority/power. Of course, somewhere in there I'm sure Edward Snowden is at fault.

These regimes are just getting more and more bold and cavalier w/ their actions and the news media mostly just looks the other way or feeds the boobs mindless drivel. The Director of National Intelligence gets caught in a lie to a Senate Cmte and he's still free and clear. Meanwhile, try lying on the stand at court and see where that'll land ya. We'll see what kind of dog and pony show becomes of this Benghazi hearing and whether or not that IRS Director gets her ass lit for that agency's misuse of public trust. Anything less than big names going to prison in any of these situations is unacceptable.

 With all the horror stories that surfaced, it's not really surprising that torture under Bush was worse than his Administration appeared to understand.

Also really great thing was that my prez banned sanctioned torture on Day one
