WASHINGTON (AP) — A former CIA official says the Senate Intelligence Committee's report on interrogation tactics throws the CIA under the bus. Jose Rodriguez, who headed the CIA's counterterrorism section, predicts that intelligence officials will now be undercut by "second-guessing" from the White House and Congress. But Sen. John McCain is defending the report. The Arizona Republican, who was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, says, "What we need to do is to "come clean, move forward and vow not to do it again." McCain was on CBS' "Face the Nation." Rodriguez spoke on "Fox News Sunday."
