WASHINGTON (AP) — A former CIA official who oversaw the agency's interrogation program says the Senate Intelligence Committee's report on coercive tactics betrays intelligence officials and will erode their trust in future presidential administrations.

He told "Fox News Sunday" that intelligence officials would be undercut by "second-guessing" from the White House and Congress and warned allied nations that cooperated with U.S. intelligence might reassess their aid.
