“In a limited number of cases, agency officers used interrogation techniques that had not been authorized, were abhorrent and rightly should be repudiated by all.”
CIA Director John Brennan (December 11 2014)
“No evidence that terror attacks were stopped, terrorists captured or lives saved through use of EITs”
Senator Diane Feinstein — Tweet (December 11 2014)
“One of the most memorable details from The Report is Jones’ insistence on access to a printer, and how many safes were in his office. He later told a lawyer that this was because documents kept mysteriously disappearing from the CIA server. In March 2014, then-CIA Director John Brennan denied the claims, calling them “beyond the scope of reason.” However, a few months later the CIA Inspector General’s report backed up claims that the CIA repeatedly hacked Senate computers in an effort to stop the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report.”

On December 9, 2014, a U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee report revealed that the CIA’s interrogation of terror suspects after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks was more brutal than it told the White House or public. The so-called “CIA torture report” called CIA tactics “deeply flawed.” Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY
The Report is a 2019 American drama film written and directed by Scott Z. Burns and starring Adam Driver, Annette Bening, Ted Levine, Michael C. Hall, Tim Blake Nelson, Corey Stoll, Maura Tierney and Jon Hamm.
The plot follows staffer Daniel J. Jones and the Senate Intelligence Committee as they investigate the CIA’s use of torture following the September 11 attacks. It covers more than a decade’s worth of real-life political intrigue, exploring and compacting Jones’s 6,700-page report.
The Report had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 26, 2019 and was theatrically released in the United States on November 15, 2019 by Amazon Studios, before streaming on Amazon Prime beginning November 29, 2019.
