Senate report: Harsh CIA tactics didn't work

WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate investigators have delivered a damning indictment of CIA interrogation practices after the 9/11 attacks, accusing the agency of inflicting pain and suffering on prisoners with tactics that went well beyond legal limits.

The torture report released Tuesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee says the CIA deceived the nation with its insistence that the harsh interrogation tactics had saved lives. It says those claims are unsubstantiated by the CIA's own records.

The 500-page report represents the executive summary and conclusions from a still-classified 6,700-page full investigation.
