Take an hour or two to read the executive summary at the beginning and you will be better informed that just about anyone. Going to the primary sources is easy enough, and it's really enjoyable (a weird word in this context) to form opinions based on the rawest information available. Of course the actual report is a political document in itself, but that aspect is as much a part of the coverage of the report as the contents itself.
Is this the same study that you linked?
Like the older:
United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary
Hearing June 10, 2008
"Coercive Interrogation Techniques: Do They
Work, Are They Reliable, and What Did the
FBI Know About Them?"
(39 pages, some interesting points are made, among them some pretty clear arguments that torture is illegal, and harsh techniques that for some reason or other are deemed to not be torture may also be illegal...)
