Senate report: CIA has been lying about torture
The CIA has been misleading Congress and the public about its interrogation practices for years, according to The Washington Post. Post reporters spoke with officials who have seen a still classified report by the Senate Intelligence Committee, detailing the growth of secret "black sites," misstatements on the effectiveness of harsh interrogation techniques, and how the CIA has misled Congress about how they gain intelligence from detainees. The controversial report is expected to come before the full Senate on Thursday for a vote on whether to declassify the document. RT's Ameera David speaks with national security journalist Marcy Wheeler about these new revelations.
