No matter what you think about it, this subject is likely to come up again. Here in the attached CRS is information your Congressman receives. Not classified but not really advertised either.
This report briefly summarizes what constituted EITs, provides background on their adoption and use, and discusses differing views on three questions that were frequently addressed in the discussion and debate of this topic:

- 2. Did the CIA’s use of EITs run counter to American values and morals?
- 3. Were the EITs effective in producing valuable intelligence, not otherwise obtainable through standard interrogation techniques?
