CIA Inspector General: No Evidence Torture Stopped Terror Attacks
Former Vice President Dick Cheney and other Bush administration officials have insisted that the use of torture techniques yielded valuable information that helped the government thwart terrorist attacks in the United States. But the CIA’s own inspector general reported in 2004 that there was no conclusive proof that waterboarding or other harsh interrogation methods helped the Bush administration stop any imminent attacks. The findings of the IG report have come to light in the wake of the Obama administration’s declassifying of Justice Department memos from the Bush era.
