BBC: CIA Torture Tapes Show ‘Vomiting And Screaming’

Posted on


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:
