Administration Releases Torture Memos, Will Not Act

Jennifer Loven and Devlin Barrett, The Associated Press: "President Barack Obama absolved CIA officers from prosecution for harsh, painful interrogation of terror suspects Thursday, even as his administration released Bush-era memos graphically detailing - and authorizing - such grim tactics as slamming detainees against walls, waterboarding them and keeping them naked and cold for long periods. Human rights groups and many Obama officials have condemned such methods as torture. Bush officials have vigorously disagreed. In releasing the documents, the most comprehensive accounting yet of interrogation methods that were among the Bush administrations most closely guarded secrets, Obama said he wanted to move beyond 'a dark and painful chapter in our history.'"

Torture Memos Revealed

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "CIA interrogators were given legal authorization to slam an alleged 'high-value' detainee's head against a wall, place insects inside a 'confinement box' to induce fear and force him to remain awake for 11 consecutive days, according to a closely guarded August 1, 2002, legal memo released publicly by the Justice Department for the first time on Thursday."
