Interrogation 101

leave a comment »

Barack Obama’s nominee for National Intelligence Director told the Senate Intelligence Committee today that he believes some interrogation techniques should be kept secret so that adversaries can’t train to resist them, The New York Times reports.

“We don’t want to provide open intelligence support for those who are coming after us,” Dennis Blair said.

Well, too late, buddy!  Your soon-to-be boss just signed an executive order today that limits all interrogation techniques to what is allowed in the Army Field Manual.  Yep, that’s the same field manual that’s available online.  Maybe those terrorists don’t have Internet connections that would allow them to see it, though.
