John BrennanRight now, the Senate Intelligence Committee possesses a 6,000-page report on detention and interrogation techniques used by the CIA in the War on Terrorism. As yet, it remains classified, but White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan has a copy, and at his confirmation hearing to be CIA director, Senator Dianne Feinstein asked if he's read it, or at least the 300-page summary.

He said he had read the first 300 pages as promised, prompting a question about whether "enhanced interrogation techniques" were key to getting Osama bin Laden. And here is how he answered that question:

John Brennan: Chairman, the report right now still remains classified. The report has been provided to the Agency's executive branch for comments. There clearly were a number of things, many things, I read in that report that were very concerning and disturbing to me.
