A report provides the fullest account to date of internal dissent and confusion within the Bush administration over the use of harsh interrogation tactics.
In 2002, as evidence of prisoner mistreatment at Guantánamo Bay began to mount, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents at the base created a “war crimes file” to document accusations against American military personnel, but were eventually ordered to close down the file, a Justice Department report revealed Tuesday.
I don’t know what I find more surprising: That the FBI had such a file, or that the DOJ under Ashcroft shut it down. Oh, wait. I don’t actually find it that surprising that it was shut down. Guess that leaves the fact that it was ever pursued in the first place.
