Pseudonyms deleted from U.S. Senate CIA torture report


The Obama administration is said to have deleted a bunch of fake names from "the public version of a long-awaited report" on the CIA’s use of torture on war-on-terror detainees, McClatchy reports.

“Redactions are supposed to remove names or anything that could compromise sources and methods, not to undermine the source material so that it is impossible to understand,” Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM) of the Senate Intelligence Committee said. “Try reading a novel with 15 percent of the words blacked out. It can’t be done properly.”
