A Call for the Facts
Last year, the Senate Intelligence Committee adopted a report on its multi-year investigation into CIA torture. The information in this report needs to be released to the public. The public needs to see the facts showing that torture harmed our national security. Also, the report may provide the information necessary to put in place new safeguards to prevent the use of torture in the future.
Add your name to the statement.
Torture is a moral abomination. It runs contrary to the teachings of all religions and is an egregious violation of the dignity and worth God gives to every human being including torture’s victims and perpetrators. Torture is always wrong.
"Zero Dark Thirty," a critically acclaimed film that will be seen by millions of people, falsely implies that the use of torture by U.S. authorities provided intelligence that led to Osama bin Laden. "Zero Dark Thirty" is fiction.
The Senate Intelligence Committee recently adopted, with a bipartisan vote, a more than 6,000 page report on the CIA’s use of torture. The report is the result of a three-year investigation and is based on information about the detainee interrogation program contained in millions of pages of documents. This report contains the facts about torture.
The public needs the facts about torture in order to understand fully that torture is morally wrong, illegal, and ineffective and to ensure that torture never happens again. We call on the Senate Intelligence Committee to release its report to the public as soon as possible.
