Summary:

Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) interrogations at secret overseas jails raised concerns among law enforcement officials. Justice Department personnel considered prosecutions, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officials were skeptical of the legal and practical virtues of the interrogations, according to the New York Times. Hundreds of pages of documents were released as part of a response to FOIA lawsuits by the American Civil Liberties Union and Judicial Watch.

Notes:

The partially-declassified documents, released by DOJ, include some new versions of previously-released documents. The documents also include information culled from FBI agents' reports of CIA treatment of Ramzi bin al-Shibh, a September 11th plotter.
