Senate Intel Committee Bombshell Report Out at 11am

At 11am the Senate Intel Committee headed by U.S. Senator Diane Feinstein releases a report on the interrogation techniques used on terror suspects after 9/11. It's expected to criticize the use of torture and question the strength of the information it gleaned. Many have questioned the wisdom of releasing the heavily redacted report for fear it will inflame tensions worldwide and could hurt U.S. national security. Others say it's long overdue. Feinstein now expected to take the Senate floor at 11am to speak about the report. Catherine Herridge, Ed Henry and Greg Palkot reporting.
