Isakson on Release of Senate Democrats’ CIA Detention and Interrogation Report

U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today released the following statement regarding the public release of the executive summary, findings and conclusions to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Majority’s study of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program:

“Oversight of the federal government, including the intelligence community, is an important and necessary responsibility of Congress.  However, this report presents a politically motivated and one-sided account of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogations program—a program that, despite what this report alleges, helped develop intelligence that led to action against threats to our national security.

I believe this report unfairly impugns U.S. intelligence professionals and endangers Americans fighting terror as well as those being held captive by our enemies.”
