Risch blasts release of CIA interrogation report as ‘unconscionable’

Idaho Sen. Jim Risch and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, both Republicans who serve on the Senate Intelligence Committee, released a joint statement today blasting the release today of a report on the CIA’s detention program that questions the agency’s claims on the effectiveness of harsh interrogation techniques. Risch and Rubio called the release of the report “unconscionable,” saying, “We are concerned that this release could endanger the lives of Americans overseas, jeopardize U.S. relations with foreign partners, potentially incite violence, create political problems for our allies, and be used as a recruitment tool for our enemies.” You can see the full statement here.

The Washington Post has posted the full 528-page executive summary of the report online here.
