King: When Congress Was Briefed on Interrogations, They Wanted More of it Done
"I was not on the committee at that time, but I've spoken to a number of people who were and they all say the only response of the members of the Intelligence Committee was, why isn't more being done? Then, you know, nobody questioned what the CIA was doing, no one doubted it, no one raised any human rights issues or any of the issues that we hear about now. The emphasis at that time, both on the Intelligence Committee and throughout the Congress, was to get as much information, do everything necessary and don't ask questions, just make sure we are not attacked. That was the order that was given to the intelligence community."
