As I will note in a forthcoming piece, Monday is the deadline set by a federal judge for the Obama administration to release a much-anticipated CIA inspector general reportabout the agency’s detentions and interrogations practices. Only the American Civil Liberties Union, which sued to get the report released, has had to endure four different delays in obtaining the report, thanks to the Obama administration. That doesn’t exactly breed trust, so ACLU attorney Amrit Singh released this statement as something of a preemptive strike against redacting the report too heavily:
“President Obama made a commitment to transparency and accountability, and it’s time for his administration to make good on that promise,” said Amrit Singh, staff attorney with the ACLU. “The CIA Inspector General report is a crucial document that would shed light on the origins and scope of the CIA’s torture program. The American public has a right to know the full truth about the torture that was committed in its name.”
