WASHINGTON: ‘ CIA FALSELY CLAIMED THAT TORTURE STOPPED ATTACKS IN LONDON ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON:Dec.10 – The Central Intelligence Agency repeatedly and falsely claimed that its use of torture had enabled it to stop attacks on London’s Heathrow Airport and Canary Wharf, according to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The report into “enhanced interrogation techniques” published in Washington yesterday said that “thwarting of the Heathrow Airport and Canary Wharf plotting is one of the eight most frequently cited examples” that the agency gave to justify torture.

In reality, neither plot was advanced, and both had been effectively disrupted when the people the CIA tortured for the information were captured.
