CIA torture report out next week: US

The US Senate Intelligence Committee will release a long-delayed, damning report next week on Bush-era “enhanced interrogation” practices by the CIA that US President Barack Obama and others have described as torture. On Thursday, the panel’s chairwoman, Senator Dianne Feinstein, confirmed that a declassified version of the controversial study would be released “next week” after her committee and the White House ironed out differences. Feinstein and the administration sparred for months over disputes about proposed redactions in the 6,200-page report. In April, the committee voted overwhelmingly to release the 500-page executive summary and 20 conclusions of the secret document, which severely criticized the Central Intelligence Agency’s interrogation techniques at CIA-run prisons overseas, including the use of “water-boarding.”
