PT member, Terry Rockefeller, was quoted in The Daily Beast talking about the military process currently being used at the pre-trials held at Guantánamo Bay Prison:
“I remember the hopes I had that there would be a federal trial …. It’s just been the most frustrating reflection on what we’ve done as a nation that this many years later we can’t have a trial.”

“The Report” are now available on our website. The film is about Senate staffer Daniel Jones whose assignment it is to lead an investigation into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program. After analyzing 6.3 million pages of documentary evidence, Jones and his team learn about the “enhanced interrogation techniques” (techniques proven to be brutal, immoral, and ineffective) that the CIA adopted after 9/11. When Jones and the Senate Intelligence Committee attempt to release the results from his investigation, however, the CIA and White House go to great lengths to prevent the truth from getting out.
