This New York Times article suggests that the CIA retained tight control over the detainee interrogations. A quote:
“The Central Intelligence Agency’s secret interrogation program operated under strict rules, and the rules were dictated from Washington with the painstaking, eye-glazing detail beloved by any bureaucracy.”
So these were not low level people gone wild, which was what was alleged with the Abu Ghraib scandal, but instead was orchestrated by the highest levels in Washington.
This just might get interesting… Way past time, but, oh well…
