We’re going through the report now, but for a frame of reference let me refer you back to this TPMmuckraker report by Paul Kiel and Spencer Ackerman from two Julys ago. I dare say we were on to something.
Late Update: Fair question from a reader:
Confused, could you clarify— I’ve been seeing headlines at TPM and elsewhere for a couple weeks saying things something like “CIA report delayed, AGAIN”. Is the IG report with the revelations of previously unknown Bush lawbreaking that you’re currently flashing the “breaking” notice for the same one that people were recently upset about the failure to release? Or is there ANOTHER report of this sort with yet more revelations still pending?
The report released today was compiled at the request (demand, really) of Congress by the IGs of the various entities that make up the intelligence community. This is a different report from the still-classified 2004 CIA report on the effectiveness, or lack thereof, of torture whose release has been delayed several times and is still pending.
