RIGHTS GROUPS CHALLENGE CIA FOR FAILURE TO RELEASE MORE THAN 7000 DOCUMENTS RELATING TO SECRET DETENTION, RENDITION, AND TORTURE PROGRAM

(New York and Washington, DC)—The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) must no longer be allowed to use classification arguments in its attempts to prevent the disclosure of illegal or embarrassing conduct in its secret detention, torture, and rendition programs, three prominent human rights groups said today.
