The Department of Justice just released its report on the FBI’s involvement in abusive interrogations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and at Guantanamo Bay, between 2001 and 2004. The report finds that the “Bush administration’s National Security Council ignored concerns raised by the FBI over the abusive treatment of terrorism suspects.” The 370-page report details FBI agents’ observations of torture during interrogations, including “Beating or Physically Abusing a Detainee,” “Transfer to Another Country for More Aggressive Treatment,” and waterboarding.
