NEW: Sen. Wyden: Foolish to Return CIA Torture Report

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

 

U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is confident President Obama will make sure a recently-released CIA Torture report will be read by government officials, even after reports that the new Senate Intelligence Committee chairman wants the report back.

The Senate Intelligence Committee released a declassified overview of a report on CIA torture practices surrounding the 9-11 attacks in December. 

The new head of the Committee, Sen. Richard Burr, allegedly wrote a letter to President Obama, demanding the executive branch return the classified version of the report to stop documents from entering the executive branch records system, according to the Washington Post.  

“It would be unprecedented and foolish to return the Executive Branch's classified copies of the report,” Wyden said in a media statement.  “Doing so would aid defenders of torture who are seeking to cover up the facts and rewrite the historical record.” 

Wyden said in his statement on Wednesday he is confident the President will make sure the full torture report is read by government policymakers and officials, as an effort to end torture practices.   

Wyden actively pushed for the release of the torture report, and has been outspoken against torture practices by the CIA.
