Witnesses testified about the Bush Administration’s detention and interrogation program for prisoners and enemy combatants. This was the first hearing on the topic since the release of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel’s (OLC) memos on the subject which authorized techniques many analysts considered torture. In their testimony Mr. Zelikow and Mr. Soufan said that there were some strong objections to the torture policies and that they were ineffective in providing useful intelligence.

US detainee abuse ‘unprecedented’

AlJazeeraEnglish

A former state department official has accused the Bush administration of unprecedented abuse in its treatment of terror suspects.

Philip Zelikow said there was a “collective failure” on the question of torture and blamed both political parties in the US.

He also alleged that in 2006 former Bush administration officials sought to collect and destroy copies of a memo he wrote opposing the interrogation methods, as Al Jazeera’s Tom Ackerman reveals.
