Of­fi­cial: CIA ex­ceeded in­ter­ro­ga­tion rules

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

The for­mer Jus­tice Depart­ment of­fi­cial who co-wrote the so-called tor­ture memos tes­ti­fied that the depart­ment didn’t sanc­tion some of the harsh meth­ods the CIA used against de­tainees. Jay By­bee, for­mer head of the Jus­tice Depart­ment’s Of­fice of Le­gal Coun­sel, said in tes­ti­mony re­leased by the House Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee that the CIA went fur­ther than he had out­lined as per­mis­si­ble. Among those un­ap­proved meth­ods, By­bee tes­ti­fied, were mul­ti­ple wa­ter-board­ings, di­a­per­ing a de­tainee, forc­ing a de­tainee to defe­cate on him­self, forc­ing a de­tainee to wear black­out gog­gles, ex­tended soli­tary con­fine­ment, hang­ing a de­tainee from ceil­ing hooks, daily beat­ings, spray­ing cold wa­ter on a de­tainee and sub­ject­ing a de­tainee to high-vol­ume mu­sic.
