Release of U.S. Senate CIA 'torture' report still on hold

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 09/09/2014 - 08:04
By Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The public release of a long-awaited U.S. Senate report detailing the CIA's use of harsh interrogation techniques could be held up for weeks as the Senate Intelligence Committee and Obama administration negotiate what material can be included in the document, the committee's chairwoman said on Monday. The committee had hoped to release its 600-page summary of the report on the Central Intelligence Agency's use of tactics many label as "torture" before Congress left for its August recess, a target that was pushed to September as discussions continued. On Monday, as Congress returned from its five-week break, Senator Dianne Feinstein said the document would not be released this week, and might not come out before lawmakers leave later this month to campaign for the Nov. 4 congressional elections.

California capitol star-struck as Schwarzenegger unveils portrait

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 09/09/2014 - 07:47

Arnold Schwarzenegger attends the premiere of "The Expendables 3" in Los AngelesBy Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO Calif. (Reuters) - Four years and seven movies after Arnold Schwarzenegger left California's highest office, the actor and politician drew a packed crowd at the unveiling of his official portrait Monday, a flashbulb-popping event as much about star power as politics. The photo-realistic portrait, painted by Austrian-Irish artist Gottfried Helnwein, shows the 67-year-old former bodybuilder in front of the California state seal, wearing a gray suit and a blue-and-black striped tie, a smile on his lips and his complexion ruddy. "When I was a young man in Austria, I dreamed about coming to California every day," Schwarzenegger, an immigrant who eventually married into the family of the late U.S. The Republican bodybuilder and prolific film star took the state's helm in 2003 as the aftermath of the dot-com crash roiled California's economy and devastated the state budget, leading voters to recall then-governor Gray Davis.
