FILE - This March 27, 2014, file photo shows Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. speaking on Capitol Hill in Washington. Feinstein is appealing to President Barack Obama to remove the CIA from declassifying a torture report harshly critical of the agency’s actions. In a letter to the president, Feinstein says the White House should lead the editing process. Feinstein’s Senate Intelligence Committee voted last week to release parts of the 6,600-page review after information compromising national security is blacked out. Obama has backed the declassification. But the White House has said the CIA will lead that process. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

FILE - This Jan. 15, 2009, file photo shows then-CIA Director Michael Hayden, and a former National Security Agency (NSA) chief, participating in a news conference at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. At the center of a hotly disputed Senate torture report is America’s biggest counterterrorism success of all: the killing of Osama bin Laden. The still-classified, 6,200-page review concludes that waterboarding and other harsh interrogation methods provided no key evidence in the hunt for bin Laden, according to congressional aides and outside experts familiar with the investigation. The CIA still disputes that conclusion. (AP Photo/Luis M. Alvarez, File)
