In response to mentions on pages 401-407 in the CIA torture report that refer to reporting done by Douglas Jehl when he worked for the New York Times in 2005, Mr. Jehl said the following:

“As a national security reporter for The Times in 2005, I worked aggressively to pursue and publish stories about the CIA’s harsh interrogation of terrorist suspects, at a time when those details remained highly classified.  I am proud of the work that my Times colleagues and I did in bringing these CIA practices to light.  I was not interviewed for the Senate report, and would never comment on reporting that was based on confidential conversations with current and former U.S. government officials.’’
-Douglas Jehl, Washington Post foreign editor
