What's in the Senate's report on CIA torture?

The Senate Intelligence Committee spent five years looking at more than six-million pages of CIA documents. The report today is a scathing review of the interrogation techniques used after 9/11. It concludes the methods of torture were far more extensive than previously known, more brutal than officials had said and it found the techniques did not work. Barbara Starr breaks down some of the report's grisly details.

Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin looked at the report and pointed out that America never tortured enemies of previous wars like Nazis or Viet Cong like this. It was part of a discussion that also included Col. Morris Davis. a former Chief Prosecutor for Terrorism Trials at Guantanamo Bay and CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen.
