MOSCOW, December 9 (Sputnik) — CIA Director John Brennan expressed his dissatisfaction with the US Senate's Tuesday report on the agency's interrogation techniques, saying it is biased and tells only part of the truth.
On Tuesday, the US Senate Intelligence Committee released a 500-page summary of the detailed investigation into the CIA interrogation techniques that were used on alleged al-Qaeda agents, following the 9/11 attacks.
According to Brennan, however, enhanced interrogation techniques helped "thwart attack plans, capture terrorists, and save lives."
"The intelligence, gained from the program was critical to our understanding of al-Qa'ida and continues to inform out counterterrorism efforts to this day," Brennan added.
The report took nearly four years to compile, and is the most comprehensive report to date examining the CIA's torture program.
