Judge Peels Off Layer of CIA Torture Secrecy


From Courthouse News Service: Three years ago, the U.S. government revealed only a heavily abridged, 524-page summary of a study on the CIA’s enhanced interrogation program; until recently, the full, 6,200-page study and 24 related documents have remained classified. Just last week, however, a federal judge ordered the government to disclose five of those cited documents.

“The ACLU may also learn more about the psychiatric community’s complicity in the torture program through the disclosure of the document ‘Summary and Undated Reflections of Chief of Medical Services on OMS Participation in the RDI Program.’

Hellerstein said that the contents of the document are shrouded in mystery.

‘In short, we do not know anything about the document other than what is apparent from the document itself,’ he said.”
