The hilariously misnamed Department of Justice last Friday released some spooooooky documents to celebrate Halloween. From the NY Times:
F.B.I. agents who arrived at a secret C.I.A. jail overseas in September 2002 found prisoners “manacled to the ceiling and subjected to blaring music around the clock,” and a C.I.A. official wrote a list of questions for interrogators including “How close is each technique to the ‘rack and screw,’ ” according to hundreds of pages of partly declassified documents released Friday by the Justice Department.
The documents apparently ponder whether or not to prosecute CIA employees, including one interrogator who threatened a suspect with a gun and a power drill. The FBI of all organizations, seems to be on the side of sanity, questining the CIA’s overseas interrogation program “on grounds of both legality and effectiveness.”
