Intlaw women weigh in on Torture Report

feinsteinIn addition to the post below by IntLawGrrl and Milena Sterio (Cleveland State), many women in academia and NGOs have contributed to the cybersphere in the wake of Tuesday’s release of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Committee Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation Program – a document known everywhere as the Torture Report. Indeed, the report’s release owes much to one of America’s most powerful women, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein of California. (photo credit) Feinstein’s #ReadtheReport tweets are available here.
