VICE News has obtained and published 39 pages of redacted documents from the CIA that shed new light on the treatment of CIA detainees after 9/11.
VICE obtained them through a FOIA request by Jason Leopold. The papers reveal previously undisclosed communications with Sen. Dianne Feinstein about detainee treatment and CIA investigations about alleged detainee abuse.
Says Jason Leopold, "Among the many allegations leveled against the CIA, the agency has vociferously denied one in particular: that it plied any of the 119 captives it held with 'mind-altering' substances to facilitate interrogations. After detainees complained to lawyers that they had been forcibly drugged for interrogations, the CIA's internal watchdog determined in 2008 that this wasn't the case, according to 39 pages of redacted documents that were just declassified and obtained exclusively by VICE News in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request."
