Pressure Mounts to Declassify the Senate Torture Report

The Senate Intelligence Committee produced a landmark 6,000-page report on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program. This report has the potential to end the debate on torture and prevent its return. Hint: according to those who have read the report, it says that torture didn’t save American lives and that torture was more widespread and harsher than we thought.

The problem: The American public can’t read it because it’s classified.

Bipartisan support for declassification is growing, and after developments this week, America may soon be able to know the truth about the CIA’s torture program.  Here’s what you may have missed.

March 11: Senator Dianne Feinstein accuses the CIA of obstructing the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation on torture.
