Obama on pending CIA report: 'We tortured some folks'

Washington (CNN) – A report on CIA interrogation practices after 9/11 will be declassified in the coming weeks.

Today, President Obama gave his declarative take on the report, saying, "In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, we did some things that were wrong. We did a whole lot of things that were right, but we tortured some folks."

The President also stood by his CIA Director John Brennan, who is accused of a "reversal" at the very minimum and flat out lying through his teeth by some who want him out.
