I saw that nobody posted on this, so I figured I should:
Today, the CIA's inspector general report on interrogation was released from 2004. Here's the link: The Washington Independent The 2004 CIA Inspector General Report on Torture
Some short snippets:
"OIG found 11 interrogation videotapes to be blank. Two others were blank except for one or two minutes of recording. Two others were broken and could not be reviewed. OIG compared the videotapes to [redacted] logs and cables and identified a 21-hour period of time, which included two waterboard sessions, that was not captured on the videotape."
"One officer expressed concern that one day, Agency officers will wind up on some "wanted list" to appear before the World Court for war crimes stemming from activities [redacted] Another said "Ten years from now we're going to be sorry we're doing this ... [but] it has to be done." He expressed concern that the CTC Program will be exposed in the news media and cited particular concern about the possibility of being named in a leak."
"In one instance cited in the new documents, Abd al-Nashiri, the man accused of being behind the 2000 USS Cole bombing, was hooded, handcuffed and threatened with an unloaded gun and a power drill. The unidentified interrogator also threatened Nashiri's mother and family, implying they would be sexually abused in front of him, according to the report.
Other interrogators told alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, "if anything else happens in the United States, 'We're going to kill your children,'" one veteran officer said in the report."
Wonderful stuff, really. The depths of depravity that I'm reading in the report are scaring me.
Some good news though - http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/25/us...detain.html?hp
Holder is appointing a prosecute to look into a dozen or so cases of interrogation. I wish it was a broader investigation, all the way to the Oval Office, but I think it will expand as more details are released.
