On Tuesday, Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee accused the CIA of torturing suspects and lying to Congress and the Bush Administration in the aftermath of the attacks of September 11. Today, the current director, John Brennan, talked to reporters, "Our hope was that it would offer an impartial and authoritative assessment of the program, help us learn from our mistakes and inform how we conduct sensitive activities in the future. Unfortunately the committee could not agree on a bipartisan way forward and no CIA personnel were interviewed by the committee during the course of the investigation. This was unusual."
