Justice Department Documents Describe Enhanced Interrogation Techniques Used As Late As 2007 The government today handed over to the American Civil Liberties Union a detailed official description of the CIA's interrogation program. That document, a December 2004 CIA background paper sent to the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel (OLC), provides a detailed official account of the CIA's detention, interrogation and rendition programs - from a detainee's initial apprehension, to his transfer to a CIA "black site," to his interrogation - and describes the use of abusive interrogation techniques including forced nudity, sleep deprivation, dietary manipulation and stress positions. The document was one of dozens of documents, comprising hundreds of pages, that were made public today in response to two ACLU Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits for documents related to the treatment of detainees in U.S. custody overseas. The OLC documents are available online at: www.aclu.org/safefree/torture/40833res20090824.html and www.aclu.org/safefree/torture/40834res20090824.html Earlier today, the ACLU released a CIA Inspector General report on the agency's "enhanced interrogation" program and related documents. Those documents are available online at: www.aclu.org/safefree/torture/40832res20090824.html
