Citing Recent Revelations of CIA Misconduct, Udall Calls for Swift Declassification of Senate Intelligence Committee Detention, Interrogation Study

Call for Transparency Follows President's Public Commitment to 'Declassifying Report as Soon as Report is Completed'

Posted: Thursday, March 20, 2014

Mark Udall, a strong advocate for independent oversight of intelligence agencies, urged the president today to remain steadfast in his commitment to declassifying the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s exhaustive review of the CIA’s brutal and ineffective detention and interrogation program. Udall said recent revelations of CIA misconduct and attempts to evade congressional oversight should only steel the White House’s resolve to help the public understand the CIA’s past mistakes.

“These recent events point to the need to declassify as soon as possible the committee’s study on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program. … The American people deserve a proper and accurate accounting of the history, management, operation, and effectiveness of this program,” Udall wrote in his letter to the president. “In light of your recent commitment to making public the facts regarding the CIA’s program, I have full confidence that we can finally correct the record, move past this dark chapter in our history and become a stronger nation for confronting our mistakes.”

Udall’s letter builds on his recent work to bring new leadership to the CIA and to ensure intelligence agencies have strong, independent oversight.

Udall has been the leading voice in Congress for the White House and CIA to come clean about the agency's deeply flawed detention and interrogation program. Earlier this month, he pressed the White House to publicly commit to declassifying the Senate Intelligence Committee's landmark study on the CIA's misguided program.
