WASHINGTON (AP) — A White House document says the State Department has endorsed the broad conclusions of a harshly critical Senate report on the CIA's interrogation and detention practices after the 9/11 attacks, a report that accuses the agency of brutally treating terror suspects and misleading Congress.
The four-page White House document contains the State Department's preliminary proposed talking points in response to the classified Senate report, a summary of which is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
The document says, "This report tells a story of which no American is proud." But it praises "America's democratic system" for ending the CIA practices.
The document was circulating this week among White House officials. The White House accidentally emailed it to an Associated Press reporter.
