BBC: CIA Torture Tapes Show ‘Vomiting And Screaming’

The BBC’s Peter Taylor reports that sources told him that some of the CIA tapes that recorded the use of torture (or so-called “enhanced interrogation techniques”) show detainees, particularly Abu Zubaydah “vomiting and screaming.” In a new interview, Taylor asked former CIA counterterrorism head Jose Rodriquez — who ordered that the tapes be destroyed — to comment. “I don’t know where you got that from,” he said. “I don’t know about screaming and vomiting but it’s not a pretty sight,” Rodriquez said. Rodriquez is currently doing a media tour promoting his new book in which he justifies and defends the CIA’s use of torture. Watch the clip from the interview:
