Senate Questions 5 Witnesses, Tortures None

WASHINGTON DC - Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (three guesses why he got into politics) presided over a Senate judiciary subcommittee hearing today on the Bush administration's "torture memos." The senators questioned witnesses including a former FBI interrogator and a former aid to Condoleezza Rice. While the questioning at times grew heated, the senators did not resort to water-boarding. 

For insight into the use of harsh interrogation techniques, we interviewed a CIA interrogator. Allan Piper has this audio report. Joe Smith contributed to this story.
