“The most extensive review of U.S. intelligence-gathering tactics in generations.” —Los Angeles Times

Meticulously formatted, this is a highly readable edition of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation of Central Intelligence Agency interrogation and detention programs launched in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.
 
Based on over six million internal CIA documents, the report details secret prisons -- like the one in Thailand run by Gina Haspel, currently nominated to be Donald Trump's Deputy Secretary of State -- prisoner deaths, interrogation practices, and cooperation with other foreign and domestic agencies. It also examines charges that the CIA deceived elected officials and governmental overseers about the extent and legality of its operations.
 
Over five years in the making, and withheld from public view since its declassification in April, 2014, this is the full summary report as finally released by the United States government on December 9th, 2014.

This book made me so depressed.

I gave it a low rating because it triggered so much depression and rage at the depravity of actions invoked by the super power of today.
