Eritrea is the only nation in East Africa not implicated in the global CIA torture network
Eritrea is the only nation in East Africa not implicated in the global CIA torture network, according to Senate Intelligence Committee's report released today.
The report finds Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya and Somalia have all unlawfully facilitated CIA torture of suspects alleged to have ties with extremist groups.
The study, distilled from more than six million CIA documents, also says the agency consistently misled Congress and the Bush Administration about the harsh methods it used and the results it obtained from interrogating suspects.
After examining 20 case studies, the committee found that torture “regularly resulted in fabricated information”, said committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, in a statement summarizing the findings. She called the torture program “a stain on our values and on our history”.
The investigators concluded that the "enhanced interrogation techniques" did not provide any worthwhile intelligence. It also indicates that CIA officers themselves repeatedly questioned whether the interrogations were useful.
