Obviously, the big news is yesterday’s release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on CIA Interrogation Techniques following 9/11. The text of the publicly available document can be found here.

I can’t think of much to add to this discussion, at least at this point. Most likely one’s opinion aligns closely with one’s political affiliation. Or, at the very least, was cemented years ago with little chance of movement caused by newly declassified details. I could be wrong.
Regardless, I was moved by Senator McCain’s statement in support of the release of this report and thought it worth sharing.
If you’d like to dive into the weeds of the report, the good folks at the Lawfare Blog are methodically posting direct comparisons between the majority’s conclusions, the minority’s dissent, and the CIA’s rebuttal.
