Not surprising, but the declassification and release of the 2004 CIA inspector General's report has been delayed for the third time.

The IG report has been deemed the "Holy Grail" by those of us interested obtaining accountability for the torture conducted in our names in the "War on Terror."  I can only hope that this means there is a significant push from somewhere to disclose more than some agency wants disclosed.

The timeline of delayed release continues:

   June 17: The WaPo reports that the CIA is pushing the Obama Administration to keep descriptions of the torture used against detainee redacted. The same article reported that CIA "has not yet forwarded the document to the White House or the Justice Department for final review."

   June 19: The CIA gets its first delay--to June 26, citing the need for an interagency review.

   June 26: The CIA gets its second delay--to July 1, again citing the need for an interagency review.

   July 1: The third delay, reason yet to be revealed.

I will update as more info becomes available.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
