The Report - Official Trailer 2 | Prime Video.
Daniel (Adam Driver) J. Jones (Adam Driver) a Senate staffer, is selected by Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening) to lead an investigation into the 2005 destruction of CIA interrogation videotapes. Jones' small team of six, which includes April (Sarah Goldberg) and Julian (Lucas Dixon), begins work in early 2009 reviewing 6 million pages of CIA materials in a windowless office.
The narrative shifts back to the September 11 attacks of 2001, introducing George Tenet (Dominic Fumusa), Bernadette (Maura Tierney) and Gretchen (Joanne Tucker) at the Counterterrorist Center (CTC), anxiously watching live videos of the attacks. At CIA headquarters a few days later, Tenet reports on his meeting at Camp David with President George W. Bush and CTC director, Cofer Black (Ian Blackman). John Rizzo (Joseph Siravo), the CIA's legal counsel, reports that the President had given the CIA powers to "capture and detain suspected terrorists." The next year, intelligence psychologists Bruce Jessen (T. Ryder Smith) and James Elmer Mitchell (Douglas Hodge) further elaborate on the CIA's enhanced interrogation techniques, before revealing their approval of them.
Jones meets with FBI agent Ali Soufan (Fajer Al-Kaisi) and learns more about the CIA's interrogation program, particularly regarding Abu Zubaydah (Zuhdi Boueri). The interrogation of Abu Zubaydah is shown, contrasting the FBI's approach with the CIA's enhanced interrogation techniques. Bernadette is present as a witness. Soufan, who speaks both English and Arabic, says they kept Zubaydah alive and gathered crucial intelligence in the days before the CIA took over the interrogations. The CIA disagreed on techniques and results.
