Dem Rep: CIA Should Apologize for Actions Taken Against Terrorists in Aftermath of 9/11

BY:

Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D., Calif.) told MSNBC’s Craig Melvin that the CIA should “absolutely” issue an apology after Tuesday’s release of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA interrogation techniques.

Speier said she was “shocked” by the report and said “that is not what this country is about. We have got to shut this down.”

“Every single page had something in the executive summary that shocked me,” Speier said.

When asked if the CIA was likely to issue an apology, Speier seemed pessimistic and claimed the agency needed to do some “soul searching.”

“There’s an arrogance that exists within the CIA that has to be reigned in,” Speier said.

“I would certainly hope that they would recognize that with some soul searching, that they have got to come clean on this. “
