The Obama administration and its Democratic allies released an email from fugitive spy agency contractor Edward Snowden Thursday to refute his claim that he raised concerns internally about the National Security Agency's massive surveillance program.
"The notion that an individual involved in one of the more notorious episodes of the CIA's interrogation program is still employed directly or indirectly by the U.S. government is scandalous," said Ben Wizner, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union.
"If this decision stands," Mr. Wizner said, "the United States will have closed its courts to torture victims while extending complete immunity to its torturers."
