Since the passage of the JFK Assassination Records Collection Act in 1992, over 50,000 pages of Church Committee records have been declassified and made available to the public. These files contain testimony and information on U.S. attempts to assassinate foreign leaders, on the Church Committee's investigation of the intelligence agencies' response to the JFK assassination, and related topics.  Also available is the report of the Rockefeller Commission, which preceded the Church Committee and issued a brief report on CIA activities within the US. https://www.history-matters.com/archive/contents/contents_church.htm SIC Senate Select Committee Intelligence on Torture Brennan CIA Director John Brennan before SIC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdhEn3CnuZo Wikipedia: SIC report on CIA torture note: this actually appears to be a good article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senate_Intelligence_Committee_report_on_CIA_torture Panetta Review Wikipedia:  Panetta Review https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panetta_Review Report on the torture of Al Qaeda suspects New Yorker: How Did Abu Zubaydah Lose His Eye https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/how-did-abu-zubaydah-lose-his-eye Bob Graham Bob Graham was a U.S. senator from Florida from 1987 to 2005.
