The bitter battle between a spied-upon Senate panel and the sanctioned spiers (CIA) over interrogation techniques and deleted files just escalated...
- *SENATE PANEL VOTES 11-3 FOR DECLASSIFYING INTERROGATION REPORT
- *FEINSTEIN SAYS CIA REPORT CHRONICLES 'STAIN' ON HISTORY
- *FEINSTEIN SAYS CIA MADE 'SERIOUS MISTAKES' THAT HAUNT U.S.
- *SENATE INTELLIGENCE VOTE ASKS OBAMA TO ISSUE REDACTED REPORT
Of course, some might see this as a distraction pre-elections (a baffle 'em with Bush-shit moment) but that would be a conspiracy 'theory'...
As AP reports,
The Senate intelligence committee has voted to release parts of a classified report that harshly criticizes CIA terror interrogations after 9/11.
The vote to declassify the 6,300-page review's summary was 11-3. The "torture report" argues CIA methods were often cruel and ineffective. The agency disputes the findings.
The two sides are embroiled in a bitter dispute.
Senators accuse the agency of spying on their investigation and deleting files. The CIA says Senate staffers illegally accessed information. The Justice Department is reviewing competing criminal referrals.
President Barack Obama supports releasing the report.
Spokesman Jay Carney says the president will instruct intelligence agencies to conduct declassification work quickly.
Remember - Spying And Torture are best friends...
