    The Central Intelligence Agency misled the government and the American public on the severity of many of its interrogation techniques, a new report from the Senate Intelligence Committee has concluded. The 6,300-page report chronicles dozens of detainees and details how the CIA has a history of utilizing brutal interrogation methods to gain little, if any, significant information. There are also documented cases of CIA officers employing harsh techniques even after the detainee had released information. The report also includes previously undisclosed abuses, including reportedly dunking a terrorism suspect in tanks of ice water at a detention site in Afghanistan.
