CIA misled public on interrogation program, newspaper reports

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 04/01/2014 - 16:46

The lobby of the CIA Headquarters Building in McLean, Virginia(Reuters) - The Central Intelligence Agency misled the U.S. government and public for years about aspects of its brutal interrogation program, concealing details about harsh treatment of detainees and other issues, according to a report in the Washington Post. U.S. officials who have seen a Senate Intelligence Committee report on the CIA interrogation program described damning new information about a network of secret detention facilities, also called "black sites", the Washington Post said. It completed the 6,300-page draft report on the interrogation program more than a year ago but it remains classified. At the "black sites", prisoners were sometimes subjected to harsh interrogation techniques even when analysts were sure they had no more information to give, said the report, which the Post said was based on interviews with current and former U.S. officials.
