‘Didn’t say that’ Psaki ducks CIA torture report delay issues

The potential ISIS reaction is a factor in the release of the CIA torture report, the State Department spokeswoman said. Commenting on Secretary of State John Kerry’s request to delay the report, Jen Psaki told RT “That's not exactly what we said.”

RT’s Gayane Chichakyan was among the reporters grilling the State Department spokesperson on the recent reports that Kerry called the Chair of the Senate Committee on Intelligence, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), asking her to even further delay the release of the document detailing on the Central Intelligence Agency’s so-called “enhanced interrogation techniques.”

Psaki said Kerry was referring to the “foreign policy priorities”of the report’s timing, hinting that the publication of report could lead to global outrage against the US. She also highlighted Islamic State’s (IS, previously ISIS/ISIL) possible reactions as a concern. However, the spokesperson denied that State Department’s intention was to delay the long-overdue paper, which is now scheduled to be released this week.
