The IG’s report further states, “there is no doubt the Program has been effective” (P. 93) in producing material for finished intelligence reports. However, “[measuring] the effectiveness of the [enhanced interrogation techniques],” the document notes, “is a more subjective process and not without some concern.”

“In an interview, the DCI said he believes the use of [torture] has proven to be extremely valuable in obtaining enormous amounts of critical threat information from detainees who had otherwise believed they were safe from any harm in the hands of Americans,” the report continues (P. 97). “Inasmuch as [torture has] been used only since August 2002, and they have not all been used with every high value detainee, there is limited data on which to assess their individual effectiveness.”

It also notes that the techniques are “inconsistent with the public policy positions that the U.S. has taken regarding human rights.”

The report’s entire recommendations section (P. 114) is censored.

U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. is reportedly in the process of appointing a special prosecutor to investigate instances of CIA detainee abuse.
