(INTRO)

Retired military leaders are calling for the Senate Intelligence Committee to vote to release a report that details the CIA interrogation program.

Retired General Michael Lehnert, the commander responsible for establishing and running the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, is calling on Maine’s U.S. Senators to release this report.

(GENERAL LEHNERT)

THE SO CALLED ‘ENHANCED INTERROGATION TECHNIQUES’ USED ON TERRORISM SUSPECTS MADE A MOCKERY OF OUR VALUES AND PUT U.S. SERVICE MEMBERS AT RISK. SENATORS COLLINS AND KING SHOULD VOTE TO RELEASE THIS REPORT AND PROVIDE THE TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY AMERICANS DESERVE.

Former Air Force interrogator Tony Camerino, who led a team of interrogators that located suspected terrorist Abu Musab al Zarqawi, agrees.

(CAMERINO)

NOT ONLY WERE C-I-A INTERROGATION TECHNIQUES A VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS, BUT I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE AND THIS REPORT WILL CLARIFY- THAT TORTURE IS NOT HOW YOU GET THE INFORMATION THAT KEEPS AMERICANS SAFE.
