Obama Administration Refuses Release of Bush Era CIA Report

The Liberty Beat

By: Derrick Broze

In December 2012 the Senate Intelligence Committee voted to approve a 6,000-page report on the CIA rendition, detention, and interrogation program that led to torture. The report, which details the conditions of imprisonment, and information on the lies told by the CIA, has been suppressed by the Obama Administration despite a growing number of politicians, rights groups and experts calling for the release of the report. The Center for Victims of Torture has collected a list of 58 figures who believe the public should have access to the report, including former CIA employees, John Rizzo, former CIA general counsel; Vincent Cannistraro, former chief of operations and analysis at the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center; General Charles C. Krulak, former Commandant of the Marine Corps; General David M. Maddox, and many more.
