    CIA report has new details of prisoner abuse

    CIA report has new details of prisoner abuse - Yahoo! News


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – CIA interrogators carried out mock executions and threatened an al Qaeda commander with a gun and an electric drill, according to an internal report that provides new details of abuses inside's the agency's secret prisons, two leading U.S. newspapers reported on Saturday.

    Nashiri, who was implicated in the bombing of the Navy destroyer Cole in 2000, was one of two CIA detainees whose interrogation sessions were videotaped, but the tapes were destroyed by CIA officers in 2005, the Times said.

    And here I thought the tape deleting thingy was a recent event. (Hope this ain't a repeat topic but, I searched.) Is threatening a bound and detained person with imminent death torture?

    Who cares? They're terrorists, they probably had it coming, anyway.

    Inside the CIA's patchwork interrogation program - Yahoo! News
    WASHINGTON – With just two weeks of training, or about half the time it takes to become a truck driver, the CIA certified its spies as interrogation experts after 9/11 and handed them the keys to the most coercive tactics in the agency's arsenal.

    It was a haphazard process, cobbled together in the months following the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington by an agency that had never been in the interrogation business. The result was a patchwork program in which rules kept shifting and the goals often were unclear.

    At times, the interrogators went too far, even beyond the wide latitude they were given under the Bush administration's flexible guidelines, according to newly unclassified documents released Monday. Interrogators took the simulated drowning technique of waterboarding beyond what was authorized. Mock executions were held. Family members were threatened. There were hints of rape.

    US Law applies to people within our custody. Land we're leasing and is under our control would be considered a possession. The fact is we're talking criminal law so it would be the interrogator being subject to this law and him being a citizen of the US makes it applicable.
