Senate to release post-9/11 torture report.

WASHINGTON (TAP) - The Senate Intelligence Committee's much-anticipated report is set to be made public on Tuesday. The 480-page report, a summary of a still-classified 6,000 page study, amounts to the first public accounting of the CIA's alleged use of torture on suspected Al Qaeda detainees held in secret facilities in Europe and Asia in the years after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Reuters reported Monday night that the report contains graphic details about the techniques, including sexual threats made to detainees. A 600-page executive summary from the Democratic majority, led by committee chair Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, has been declassified after months of disputes between the committee and the CIA over redactions. The report comes after a years-long review of CIA practices and subsequent wrangling with the spy agency and the White House over whether its contents should be made public and, if so, which parts should be redacted.
