According to the documents, previously marked "Top Secret," between
2001 and 2007, the CIA briefed at least 68 members of Congress on the
CIA interrogation program, including so-called "enhanced interrogation
techniques." The documents include the dates of all congressional
briefings and, in some cases, the members of Congress in attendance and
the specific subjects discussed. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who
previously denied she was briefed by the CIA on the use of these
techniques, is specifically referenced in a briefing that took place on
April 24, 2002, regarding the "ongoing interrogations of Abu Zubaydah."
Zubaydah had been subjected to the enhanced interrogation techniques.
