Senator Calls for Ongoing Investigation of CIA Torture Techniques

Published on political affairs pa, by PA Staff Writers, 18 dec. 2008.

An outside commission with subpoena power should be empowered to examine the role of the CIA in authorizing and using torture on detainees held by the US government after 9/11, stated Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI), chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show Dec. 17, 2008 …

… The Senate report also hinted that the CIA’s interrogation program included torture as authorized by top administration officials.

Levin told Maddow that his committee’s finding will be turned over to the next Department of Justice, as the current Attorney General seems uninterested in looking at the evidence “objectively.”
