NEW: Sen. Ron Wyden to CIA: Torture Does Not Work

Tuesday, December 09, 2014

 

Senator Ron Wyden said torture doesn’t work in response to the CIA torture report released Tuesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee. 

“I hope this report is the catalyst CIA leaders need to acknowledge that torture did not work and close this disgraceful chapter in our country’s history,” Wyden said in a media statement.“The current CIA leadership has been alarmingly resistant to acknowledging the full scope of the mistakes and misrepresentations that surrounded this program for so many years.

Wyden assisted the launch the investigation in 2009 against CIA interrogation tactics on prisoners related to the 9-11 attacks. 

The report was released today after the orginal date was pushed forward several months, after intelligence officials said releasing the report would incite violence against Americans. 

Wyden has been an active supporter of the report, and will address the United State senate on the report today.
