In light of my counter terrorism experience, I understand that what many people want to know about are my views on CIA's former detention and interrogation program. I have views on this issue and I want to be clear. Having served in that tumultuous time I can offer you my personal commitment clearly and without reservation.
That under my leadership, on my watch CIA will not restart a detention and interrogation program. CIA has learned some tough lessons from that experience. We were asked to tackle a mission that fell outside our expertise. I fully support the detainee treatment required by law. And just as importantly, I will keep CIA focused on our collection and analysis missions that can best leverage the expertise we have at the agency.
