    Negotiations Over CIA Torture Report Nearing End

    Senate Intelligence Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein expects her panel’s long-delayed report on the CIA’s use of torture to be released before Republicans take over the chamber, signaling to reporters there’s one sticking point left.“Well, no one wants to move that more quickly than I do,” said the California Democrat. “We are down to essentially one item in the redaction. It happens to be a very sensitive and important item.” She didn’t elaborate.
    Feinstein has been negotiating with the White House for months over redactions to the report’s executive summary, with Democrats on the panel routinely ridiculing efforts by the CIA to redact large portions of the report.
    Asked about the potential that next year’s GOP-led Senate could begin the process all over again if the report’s executive summary is not made public before then, Feinstein said “it is going to get done, so don’t worry about it.”
    Feinstein said she had discussed the report with both President Barack Obama and White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough in recent days and expected to hear back quickly.
    The White House did not provide a readout of any conversation between Obama and Feinstein, but in response to an earlier query about a Denver Post interview with Democratic Sen. Mark Udall, reiterated the president’s position that the executive summary should “be declassified as expeditiously as possible.”

    About damn time this is nearing to be released. The only big question remains, is how much of the report is going to be covered in a big black marker.... I suspect a good amount.

    I'm still hoping Udall will leak the entire report. There are so many Americans that think torture was little used and nobody died. Time for the wake up call.

    "We tortured some folks."

    Big Black Marker = Whitewash.

    Whatever our illustrious Senate reveals to us will still protect the guilty parties and fool the gullible. Those who are able to read between the lines already know how the government covers its arse.

    I'd be interested in what they are negotiating about and who is taking what side of each position.

    You'll never know.



    Well, at least not until the FOIA manages to get it release...conveniently after all the people in question are long retired or dead.

    Yeah, well, the thing is this...


    The redacted part? That's the true bits. The stuff we can actually read is where the lies are. So it won't matter either way.
