One week ago, the Senate released its so-called CIA torture report. It strongly criticized the policy of "enhanced interrogations" for captured detainees and suspected terrorists. After a lengthy investigation, the summary alone came to over 500 pages.
Former vice-president Dick Cheney appeared on chummy "Meet the Press" to make his case- such as it was- that torture wasn't really torture. Here is a fact-check on his defense. As most of us could have predicted, the fact-checkers' verdict runs the full gambit... from false to mostly false.
As a courtesy to my readers, I offer you a peek at the heavily redacted report. If you would like to download the document for reference, here is the link.
