In the movie “The Report,” Adam Driver portrays Senate investigator Daniel Jones in his endeavor to document and expose the history of the CIA’s use of enhanced interrogation techniques (EITs) in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks. The efforts of Jones and his colleagues resulted in the so-called “,” which was released by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) in December 2014. “The Report” is garnering positive reviews and Oscar buzz for Driver, and it is receiving widespread acclaim in the human rights community.

It is written in clear language, without lawyerly turns of phrase or technicalities. It is designed to tell a straightforward story in terms that are easy to understand.
