The CIA Report

Interrogator Threatened to Kill Children

Here’s something for the new torture prosecutor to look into: The Associated Press is reporting that, according to the CIA report declassified on Monday, interrogators threatened to harm the families of the suspects they interrogated. One interrogator allegedly told Khalid Sheikh Mohammed that if the United States was attacked again, “We’re going to kill your children.” Another allegedly told a suspect that he was going to sexually assault his mother in front of him. The report was written in 2004 and is being declassified now as part of a lawsuit brought by the ACLU. More than 20 pages suspected of dealing with waterboarding were blacked out on the report.
