TORTURE: Well, we're getting closer to understanding what's been going on.
Here's a nugget from Newsweek:
> White House officials told reporters that such abstract legal reasoning was
> insignificant and did not reflect the president's orders. But NEWSWEEK has
> learned that Yoo's August 2002 memo was prompted by CIA questions about what
> to do with a top Qaeda captive, Abu Zubaydah, who had turned uncooperative.
> And it was drafted after White House meetings convened by George W. Bush's
> chief counsel, Alberto Gonzales, along with Defense Department general counsel
> William Haynes and David Addington, Vice President Dick Cheney's counsel, who
> discussed specific interrogation techniques, says a source familiar with the
> discussions. Among the methods they found acceptable: "water-boarding," or
> dripping water into a wet cloth over a suspect's face, which can feel like
> drowning; and threatening to bring in more-brutal interrogators from other
This kind of tactic was designed specifically for a few top al Qaeda
