Disclosure of Bush administration document about CIA interrogation techniques

A US Justice Department Memo from 30th May 2005 has now been published and it is likely to represent one the most remarkable documents about the Bush administration’s experiment with torture. The Memo concludes that the CIA did not violate the Convention Against Torture (CAT). However, as Alexander Abdo argues in his article in the Guardian, the Memo captures some of the deeply disturbing aspects of the torture that took place in the name of American national security, in particular the fruitless interrogation of Mr Abu Zubaydah who was water-boarded 83 times.  To find out more about information please visit http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/jun/26/white-house-disclosure-bush-torture-memos.
