Senate to Release Report on Bush-Era Interrogation Techniques and Policies

U.S. Marines are on high alert. So are the CIA and the White House, for that matter.

Politicians on both sides of the aisle also are ready to enter the fray.

All the fuss is over the Senate Intelligence Committee's $50 million investigation of Bush-era CIA interrogation tactics on detainees in the years after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The long-delayed report on the use of torture - "enhanced interrogation techniques" - by the U.S. government is expected to be released Tuesday morning.

This won't be a full disclosure, but the report's 480-page executive summary. There will also be a shorter Republican counter-assessment and the CIA's own assessment. The complete report totals more than 6,000 pages.
