Introduced in Senate (06/21/2011)

Recognizes that continued investigation of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employees for involvement in a detention and interrogation program to avert terrorist attacks on the United States is unwarranted and will likely have a chilling effect on the work of CIA and other U.S. national security professionals.

Urges: (1) the President and the Attorney General to immediately close the Department of Justice's (DOJ) ongoing investigation and decline future prosecution of CIA employees for actions related to the interrogation of detainees at overseas locations, including the use of enhanced interrogation techniques on detained terrorists; and (2) the President to develop and implement policies allowing for the long-term detention and interrogation of high-value detainees, including detainees captured overseas or in the custody of foreign countries.
