An anonymous reader writes: Amid the uproar over Senator Feinstein's accusations that the CIA hacked and destroyed data on Senate computers, an important part of her speech to the Senate has been overlooked: "Chairman Rockefeller sent two of his committee staffers out to the CIA on nights and weekends to review thousands of these cables, which took many months.
... the two staffers completed their review into the CIA’s early interrogations in early 2009, ... The resulting staff report was chilling. The interrogations and the conditions of confinement at the CIA detention sites were far different and far more harsh than the way the CIA had described them to us." Senator Feinstein is Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence with access to classified information. Did this "far different and far more harsh" torture become public knowledge or was the program much worse than what we already know?
