National Edition News cover for August 26, 2014 - Senate torture report didn’t interview key CIA managers: FILE - In this March 3, 2005, file photo President George W. Bush arrives with CIA Director Porter Goss, left, to talk to reporters after he received an intelligence briefing at Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in Langley, Va., near Washington. In 2004 Goss revived a CIA plan to use the private contractor Blackwater as part of its now-abandoned secret program to kill or capture terrorists in sensitive overseas operations. Blackwater had won the government's confidence by handling security and training operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, but the decision to use a private contractor yo implement this secret plan struck some former agency officials as highly unusual.

FILE - In this April 3, 2014, file photo, Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. arrives to make a statement after a closed hearing to examine certain intelligence matters in Washington. The CIA does not give up its secrets easily. Under pressure from a Senate committee to declassify parts of a congressional report on harsh interrogations of suspected terrorists, the CIA is shadowed by its reluctance to open up about its operations and its past. The CIA officials who decide which secrets can be revealed have wrestled with Congress, archivists, journalists, former CIA employees and even a former CIA director. (AP Photo/Molly Riley, File)
