20 KEY FINDINGS IN SENATE CIA TORTURE REPORT BY MOYERS AND COMANY
The TORTURE REPORT paints a portrait of a ROGUE CIA PRIVATIZED AGENCY BUT BUSH AND CHENEY SIGNED OFF ON ALL OF IT — Says CHENEY! Bush blames it on those great guys in the CIA — Like he knew nothing about them.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the chair of the Senate Intelligence committee, writes that the TORTURE AND DETENTION PROGRAM was conducted in “violation of US law, treaty obligations and our values….it is my personal conclusion that, under any common meaning of the term, CIA detainees were tortured. I also believe that the conditions of confinement and the use of authorized and unauthorized interrogation and conditioning techniques were cruel, inhuman and degrading. I believe the evidence of this is overwhelming and incontrovertible.”
