Senate intel panel to release report on 'enhanced interrogation' this summer - The Hill's DEFCON Hill
The Senate Intelligence Committee plans to finish a long-awaited report on "enhanced interrogation techniques" this summer, reviving the debate over whether the United States has engaged in torture.

The panel's lengthy report has been more than three years in the making and examines controversial interrogation techniques such as water boarding and sleep deprivation.

"We expect to finish the work and bring it to the committee this summer and the committee will act," David Grannis, the committee's Democratic staff director, told The Hill. "I wouldn't want to speculate as to what the committee will do when it's got a decision before it."

The release of the report is likely to move the issue of enhanced interrogation to the forefront of the political debate as the parties vie for control of Congress and the White House.

I am reminded of the movie "The Ghost Writer." Towards the end of the film the ghost writer (Mcgregor) confronted the British PM (Brosnan) about his connection with the CIA terror operations (Polanski must be trying to show the naiveness of Mcgregor). Brosnan replied that he would like to have two queues on airports. One is informed by terror interrogations, an one without all that, then he'll pose a question to the Rycarts (the Foreign Minister who resigned out of conflict with Brosnan on the British participation in these CIA terror flights) of the world, which queue they'd like to sent their kids into?
