Letter to President Obama on Rejecting Request to Return CIA Torture Report

The new chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Richard Burr, requested that the executive branch return all copies of the CIA torture report to the committee. Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) and partner organizations sent this letter to President Obama urging him to reject Senator Burr’s request. We called on the president to direct all relevant agencies and departments in his administration to review the full report and adopt internal reforms to eradicate torture and cruel treatment from official U.S. policy.
