Torture Process Described in Detail

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "Among the treasure trove of documents released on Monday related to the CIA's detention and torture program is a 20-page background paper that, for the first time, describes in extraordinary detail the process of "rendition" and the torture prisoners are then subjected to when they are flown to 'black site' prisons. The document was turned over to the ACLU in response to the civil liberties group's Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the government late on Monday evening along with numerous others, including previously undisclosed Justice Department legal opinions."

Memos Suggest Legal Cherry-Picking in Justifying Torture

Daphne Eviatar, The Washington Independent: "On the same day that the government produced the 2004 CIA Inspector General's report on interrogations, it also turned over seven more memos and letters from the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel. The memos released on Monday were the Justice Department's legal justifications for continuing to use those controversial interrogation techniques, despite a new law passed by Congress and an intervening landmark Supreme Court ruling that governs U.S. detentions overseas."
