FILE - In this Aug. 28, 2007 file photo, then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is seen in New Orleans. A Senate investigation portrays a dysfunctional relationship between the Bush White House and the CIA regarding the agency's brutal interrogation program. The report says the White House didn't press hard for information, and the agency withheld details about the brutality of the techniques while exaggerating their effectiveness. Alberto Gonzales is the former attorney general who was White House counsel when harsh CIA interrogations were approved. Gonzales tells The Associated Press it was not the White House's responsibility to manage the program. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — In July 2004, despite growing internal concerns about the CIA's brutal interrogation methods, senior members of George W. Bush's national security team gave the agency permission to employ the harsh tactics against an al-Qaida facilitator the agency suspected was linked to a plot to disrupt the upcoming presidential election.
