Senate report: Harsh CIA tactics didn't work - where to get mylar
WASHINGTON (AP )-
On Tuesday, Senate investigators made tough allegations about the CIA's practices, accusing the spy agency of giving al-
Al-Qaida prisoners go far beyond their legal borders and then cheat the country with accounts of useful interrogation that their own records have not confirmed.
The Senate Intelligence Committee has released a lot of evidence from CIA files that shows that detainees in secret prisons ten years ago were treated worse than the government described to Congress or the public.
This is the first official public report by the CIA after years of debate over the brutal handling of prisoners.
At the White House, President Obama announced the practice, which was used by detainees after Egypt's independence.
2001, attack, "contrary to our values.
He assured, "I will continue to exercise my authority as president to ensure that we do not use these methods any more.
"The report does not refer to tactics as torture.
But the chairman of the committee, Dianne Feinstein, made an extended speech in the Senate, announcing that "in any common sense of the term, CIA detainees are tortured.
"Except now --well-
As we all know, waterboarding practices include weeks of lack of sleep, slapping and slamming the walls of detainees, limiting them to small boxes, isolating them for a long time and threatening their death.
Simulation of drowning technology, three detainees face water punishment.
Some were broken by treatment, pleading, and whimpering, and one was described as being in a "compliant" position on the water table when the interrogator's fingers rang.
In its most controversial conclusions, the report asserted that, despite the effectiveness of breaking the spirit of detainees, "enhanced interrogation techniques" did not yield truly important results.
It cites cables, emails and interview records from the CIA to counter the core rationale for torture --
The lives of Americans have been saved, and terrorist plots have stopped through the information that detainees provide only when they are subjected to very harsh methods. The 500-

Nearly six years ago, President Barack Obama ordered the trial to be stopped when he took office, even though the toughest interrogation methods had been stopped as early as a few years ago.
The report provides the president, the Justice Department, Congress, and the American public with a catalogue of what senior CIA officials believe to be false statements.
It describes mismanagement so that the agency loses track of how many detainees it has held.
Senate investigators record 119
It is higher than the 98 figures described in the memorandum published on 2009.
At least 39 people are facing severe interrogation, the report said.
The CIA quoted the 30 th.

"The summary of the report was released after months of hard negotiations on what should be reviewed, when concerns were raised that it might trigger violence against Americans overseas. U. S.
The embassy has strengthened security and military bases around the world as counter-attacks are expected
S. response, Secretary of State John Kerry later asked Van Stein to consider delaying the release, but did not have any effect.
Earlier this year, Feinstein accused the CIA of infiltrating the Senate computer system in a file dispute as relations between investigators and spy agencies deteriorated.
The report was written by California Democratic party staff, including former FBI agent Daniel Jones.
Former CIA officials strongly questioned the findings of the report.
The same is true of Senate Republicans, whose written objections accuse Democrats of inaccurate and sloppy analysis,
The evidence was selected to reach a predetermined conclusion.
CIA officials acknowledge that there are serious errors in the interrogation process and they have prepared their own response, but claim that it provides important intelligence and still guides the agency's counter-terrorism efforts.
"We know this project has led to al-
Al-Qaida leaders took them away from the battlefield to prevent mass casualties and saved the lives of thousands of Americans, "CIA Director George Tenet said in Parliament.
2001 attacks occurred.
Tenet told The Associated Press that the report missed the background of a severe interrogation, 9/11 of the countries were in trouble, and CIA officials believed more attacks would occur. The entire U. S.
The government is under pressure to prevent a second wave and lacks intelligence to deal with this possibility.
"This is a ticking time bomb every day," said tenet . ".
The Senate investigation found no evidence that the trial ended an imminent conspiracy.
Feinstein is forgiven for denying the CIA's actions.
"This pressure, fear and expectation of further terrorist plots does not justify improper actions taken by individuals or organizations in the name of national security, as reasonable, moderate or excuse," she wrote . ".
Although Bush approved the project in 2002, he was not informed of the details by the CIA until 2006, and then he expressed discomfort with the "image of detainees locked in the ceiling, wearing diapers, I was forced to go to the bathroom myself.
In his 2010 memoir, Bush said he discussed the project with tenet, but the CIA director told the agency's inspector general that it had never happened.
More cruelly than ever, the CIA interrogation process stems from 2002 secret orders from President George W.
Bush responded to the meeting. 11 attacks.

The trial was not mentioned in the order, the report said. After al-

The government finally paid $80 million to their company.
They were not mentioned in the report, but they were Bruce Jason and James Mitchell.
The CIA added unauthorized methods to its interrogation.
During CIA detention, at least five men received "rectal hydration", a form of rectal feeding.
The report found no medical necessity for treatment.
Others are threatened with "ice bath" and death.
At least three people in captivity have been told that their families will suffer and CIA officials have threatened to harm their children, sexually abused the mother of a man and cut off the other
Zubaydah was held at a secret facility in Thailand where the detention was described as green.
FBI agents obtained key intelligence from Zubaydah through traditional interrogation, and stopped participating when the CIA took over and raised pressure.
The report said that in the early days of his detention, CIA officials believed that he had information about the impending plot, and that zhabada had been quarantined for 47 days without being questioned.
After that, he was influenced by other techniques, and later he had mental problems. He's not alone.

A month later, the CIA questioner found out
Najjar is a "broken person" and is on the edge of "full crash.
"But the treatment got worse, and officials lowered his food rations, got him locked in the cold, gave him diapers instead of going to the toilet," the report said . ".
Some detainees in Afghan prisons marched naked, or were dragged out of their cells by police, forcibly stripped of their clothes, and then secured with masked Merah tape. Dragged along the corridor when he was slapped with ear light and punched and kicked.
Gul Rahman, an extremist suspect who for the first time in late 2002 had a taste of enhanced interrogation, experienced two days of lack of sleep, complete darkness, isolation and "rough treatment ".
"Then Rahman was tied to the wall of the cell and was forced to rest on the bare concrete floor wearing a sweatshirt.
He died the next day.
The CIA's examination and autopsy found him dead of a low body temperature.
The Justice Department conducted an investigation into this and a CIA detainee died again without making any charges.
CIA officials say it is reasonable that the toughest technology is usually done to the United States. S.
To become a member of the elite special operations force.
But the report highlights that the CIA's approach to waterboarding of zhabada and two other detainees is very different from any practice in the United States. S.
The military does so in training, and it is more brutal than the careful procedures set out in the memo of the Ministry of Justice authorizing this strategy.
According to internal CIA records, in a meeting, zumada became "completely unresponsive and bubbles rose from his open mouth ".

On March 2003, CIA officials pointed out that the water sentence did not make Mohammed more obedient.
But the report states that they continue to sentence him for 10 days.

According to the report, al-Qaida has made efforts to obtain a "nuclear suitcase.

Reported that two days after the water sentence, Mohammed made up a story about the search for black Muslims in Montana.
John McLaughlin, then deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency, said in an interview that Muhammad "became our consultant" and was about al-Qaida.
However, according to the report, "a large number of intelligence reports identified by the CIA as critical threat reports were later identified as fabricated.
"More waterboarding may have occurred, but Senate investigators are not sure.
They found a picture of the well.
In places of detention where the CIA said it did not use the technology, there was a bucket of water around the worn water board.
The agency never explained the photo.
Although the CIA, after reviewing 6 million agency documents, claimed that investigators could not find unique and life examples, no unique intelligence was generated
The preservation of information collected from coercive means, in some cases, can lead to the illusion and suicide of detainees.
This is another debate between the CIA and the Republican Party.
Report zero at 20 highs
Some of the cases cited by the CIA were counter-terrorism successes due to its intensive interrogation.
In each report, the Senate report argues that the key information comes from other places or detainees before he is subjected to harsh technology.
Investigators claim that the killing of 2011 people in bin Laden was the biggest victory, refuting the argument that this practice proved decisive.
The center of the debate is how AmericaS.

But Senate investigators found this was not the case.

Balochistan withdrew the original words and was unreliable.
Many disputes follow this model, with Senate investigators and CIA officials fighting on the same set of evidence, but everyone points to different data points to state their case.
Reported that the CIA learned that the United StatesS.
On 2002, eight days before zhabada provided the FBI with information about the Padra's "dirty bomb" plot, José Padra, a citizen from a foreign government, had no name.
The CIA maintains that Padila's case is a good example of obtaining intelligence from its detainee program, which he was arrested in Chicago on 2002 on suspicion of plotting a radioactive bomb attack.
The CIA admitted it was wrong to claim waterboarding, and other such tactics helped defeat the plot to attack the United States. S.

Attacks planned by Mohammed
The CIA quoted the interrogation as saying it led to the arrest of students it believed were ready to attack the West Coast skyscrapers.
Senate investigators said that the students were not involved in such a conspiracy, and that the detainees, under great coercion, provided the answers that the interrogators wanted to hear.
Senate investigators say the British authorities have arrested an American citizen. K.
A year later, a citizen intended to attack the target there, while the CIA insisted that his alias came from Mohammed.
The CIA argued that the harsh interrogation of Mohammed also led to the admission of the Ohio truck driver, Iman Farris, of terrorism charges.
Senate reports say Farris is on the FBI radar.
Pakistan has arrested another terrorist suspect, resulting in an acquaintance calling Faris to inform him of his arrest.
The National Security Agency's eavesdroppers are listening.
Officials question the project;
By January 2003, at least one senior CIA official had already had enough.

Other officials raised questions about the effectiveness of these methods, but their concerns were not addressed.
The report found that of the 39 detainees receiving enhanced technology, seven did not provide any information during CIA detention.
Some detainees face this technology as soon as they enter CIA detention, in stark contrast to long-standing agency claims that detainees first have the opportunity to answer questions.
According to the report, one out of every five detainees does not meet the detention standards set out in the Bush directive.
In the absence of a Central Intelligence Agency headquarters mandate, at least 17 people have suffered severe technology.

Senate investigators say Tuesday's release, full of government editors, is still part of a confidential report.

Until then, the entire story of the CIA's interrogation plan may not be known.
