Federal Court Blocks 'Truth About Torture' in Ruling on Senate Report

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

A federal appeals court on Friday rejected a lawsuit that called for the full release of the U.S. Senate's report on the CIA's post-September 11 abuse and torture of detainees.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said the report isn't subject to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests—ruling against the ACLU, which filed the lawsuit seeking publication of the 6,000-page document.

Truth and transparency the oxygen of democracy, wait we don't want democracy we want more of the same.

The extremism of 'centrism' is on full display here.
Authoritarian, secretive, unaccountable, anti-democratic.
Brutal and violent.

Don't forget for a second that sanity demands we overcome this criminal corruption.
Know that the 'center' is a global reign of terror with an astronomical body count.
It cannot be saved. It should not be saved.
Participation is psychopathy not patriotism.
See what is right in front of your eyes for so many decades,
but you have chosen not to see!

No dictatorship can rise without a torture program --
this looks like practice to me.
