Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid discussed the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on torture used by the CIA on the floor Tuesday, saying torture had no benefits and likening the report to the release of the Pentagon Papers and reports on Abu Ghraib and the Iran-Contra affair. “It got us nothing but a bad name,” Reid said. “What took place, the torture program, was not in keeping with our country.”
