The CIA is pressing the Obama administration not to release the entirety of a 2004 report on the interrogation program, intelligence officials tell the Washington Post. The agency says that publicizing the information would expose current intelligence-gathering methods. The administration pledged to review the report—called the “most definitive account” of interrogations—following an ACLU appeal; any new information that can be released is expected to emerge Friday.
Intelligence officials current and former were mixed on the release. “There is a lot about how the CIA operated the overall program of detention and interrogation—not just about how they used techniques—that would be sensitive and rightly redacted," said a top intelligence official. But some former CIA officials said the material is safe for public consumption and doesn’t contain much we don’t already know.
