CIA torture 'contrary to our values': Obama

AFP , Tuesday 9 Dec 2014

US President Barack Obama said Tuesday the CIA's torture of Al-Qaeda suspects, as documented in a Senate report, had been "contrary to our values."

"That is why I unequivocally banned torture when I took office, because one of our most effective tools in fighting terrorism and keeping Americans safe is staying true to our ideals," Obama said.
