The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee says the panel's report on brutal CIA interrogation practices used after the 9/11 terror attacks is a troubling record of a stain on America's history.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein says the CIA interrogation techniques used on at least 119 people in some cases amounted to torture.

The California Democrat says that releasing the Senate committee's report on those interrogation tactics is an important step in restoring American values.

Addressing concerns that the release of the report could add to turmoil in the world, Feinstein said the report is too important to leave on the shelf.
