Permalink CIA Enhanced Interrogation Techniques Horrific but "Legal": Senator

Legality - The Last Resort of A Scoundrel: Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr has stated that the CIA's interrogation methods are legal and the recent Senate report does not offer the American people any new knowledge. The enhanced interrogation techniques, used by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and described in a recent Senate report, may be alarming to US citizens, but are justifiable from the legal perspective, incoming Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr has told Sputnik. "We may look back and say we should never do this again, that is fine. But it was legal, it was directed by the [US] president and the individuals were cleared by the Justice Department," Burr said Thursday. The senator added that the new report on CIA activities, released by the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, does not offer the American people any new knowledge.
