Maryknoll responds to release of Senate torture report

 

The Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, Pax Christi International member organization in the US, responds to the 9 December release of the US Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on its multi-year investigation into the CIA’s use of torture. Maryknoll recognizes the great importance of the publication of this document, which details terrible acts of horrific brutality.

Maryknoll missioners often have served in communities alongside torture survivors, and several have experienced dehumanizing torture themselves. As such, they acknowledge the suffering of those who were the victims of this torture program and their families, apologize for their complacency, and denounce the use of torture as barbaric and wrong.
