The US Senate Intelligence Committee has published its highly anticipated and divisive report into the CIA's detention and interrogation programme employed after the September 11 attacks.
Only the executive summary of the 6,700-page classified report has been published, including its 20 findings.
The 20 conclusions are presented below, including particularly revealing passages from the full text, which you can read in the official summary here.
1 The CIA's use of its enhanced interrogation techniques was not an effective means of acquiring intelligence or gaining cooperation from detainees.
"While being subjected to the CIA's enhanced interrogation techniques and afterwards, multiple CIA detainees fabricated information, resulting in faulty intelligence. Detainees provided fabricated information on critical intelligence issues, including the terrorist threats which the CIA identified as its highest priorities."
