NEW YORK, December 10 (Sputnik) — Nobody in the United States wants the truth about CIA enhanced interrogation techniques to become public knowledge, a former analyst of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has told Sputnik.
McGovern added that those "techniques [were] actually demonstrated multiple times in the White House itself to the administration's most senior national security and justice officials, and then implemented by CIA thugs."
On Tuesday, the US Senate Intelligence Committee released a 500-page summary of a detailed probe into CIA interrogation techniques that were used on alleged al-Qaeda agents in the wake of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington.
Security was boosted at US facilities around the world this week ahead of the release of the controversial report, amid fears that new evidence of waterboarding and other forms of torture would incite revenge attacks against the US.
