Release Senate Report on CIA Torture

Dear Intelligence Committee Member: 

I urge you to make the forthcoming Senate Select Committee on Intelligence's report on the CIA's detention and interrogation program public with as few redactions as possible.

The public has a right to have access to all the information available about the truth behind the CIA's involvement in torture and cruel treatment of detainees following the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.

A public release of the report is a critical first step in seeking public accountability for those involved in secretly crafting and implementing the misguided and unlawful policies of the past outside the law and without proper oversight or review.

Only when all facts are known can we understand what went wrong and prevent such abuses from happening again in the future.

Until the report is made public, torture proponents will continue to use the secrecy that surrounds the CIA's detention and interrogation program to distort the facts about torture and cruel treatment, including defending the use of so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques"--a gross misnomer for torture and cruel treatment.

The public should be able to review the report to understand what brought about the shift in U.S. policy toward torture and cruel treatment and diminished America's longstanding consensus against torture and cruel treatment.


Please support making the report public with as few redactions as possible. Thank you.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
