The State Department is seeking the declassification of a 10-month-old letter expressing its concerns about a controversial Senate torture review, U.S. officials said Wednesday.

The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee appealed to President Barack Obama to reconsider his administration's decision to task the CIA with editing a torture report harshly critical of the spy agency's treatment of terror suspects after the Sept. 11 attacks before it can be made public.
Leading Democrats sharply criticized a former CIA chief on Monday for suggesting that a disputed torture report produced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein's Senate panel was motivated by her "emotional feeling" and not by a desire for objectivity.
