For Immediate Release
Libertarian Party calls for shutting down CIA, criminal prosecutions
Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas J. Sarwark released the following statement today:
"The CIA’s practice of torture confirmed by the Senate Intelligence Report released on December 9 shows the agency engaged in reprehensible and illegal behaviors that were, in effect, war crimes.
"The CIA and politicians redacted the bulk of the government’s report, which remains withheld from public view. One can only speculate as to the additional horrors that lie within the rest of the report, given the gravity of what was revealed.
The LNC will attempt to stream the meeting live on the Internet. Because of potential technical challenges, and to experiment with various broadcasting arrangements, multiple options for broadcast may be presented. Check back on this page for potential updates.
