In late August we saw the long awaited re-release of a report by the CIA's Office of Inspector General (the agency's internal watchdog) investigating the use of "enhanced interrogation techniques" (an earlier version seemed to be over 90 percent redacted; this one's closer to (only) half blacked out). The release seemingly was timed to Attorney General Holder's decision to reopen a dozen or so prisoner abuse cases. Though it has not yet been released, some had also expected the release of another document -- a report by the Office of Inspector General of the Justice Department on whether John Yoo and other Office of Legal Counsel lawyers violated their professional ethical duties when they wrote memos claiming the administration's proposed torture techniques were legal. All these developments have again brought to the forefront the issue of what interrogation techniques should be used to obtain information, and what should be done with those who exceeded whatever authority they were given.
