“C.I.A. Torture Detailed in Newly Disclosed Documents” The New York Times
The New York Times reports that newly released documents go into more detail about CIA torture techniques. Lawyers for two detainees subjected to extreme “enhanced interrogation” are asking federal judges to obtain a copy of the report to ensure that it is preserved as Trump takes office. Michel Paradis, the lawyer for Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, argued that a copy of the report deposited in the National Archives was insufficient as it could be withdrawn or destroyed. A federal judge has ordered the Obama administration to provide a copy of the report to the court.
