Interrogation and detentio report A Senate Intelligence Committee report detailing the CIA’s controversial interrogation and detention program following the 9/11 terror attacks could be released to the public as soon as next week, congressional sources in each party said Wednesday.

The document that will be released is a nearly 700 page summary of the full 6,800 page report that was approved a year and a half ago by a committee sharply divided along party lines.

Senators on the committee have indicated the report is critical of the CIA’s treatment of terrorism suspects saying it amounted to torture, something CIA officials have denied. It also finds that those harsh interrogation techniques did not help disrupt future terrorist attacks as many in intelligence community have claimed.

After the committee voted this spring to release a declassified version to the public, the report was sent to the intelligence community and the White House so classified and other sensitive information could be redacted.

The sources said the White has said the report – which contains views of senators who voted for and against it - will be sent back to them by this Friday.
