WikiLeaks bolsters argument for ‘enhanced’ interrogation tactics


–Cables show U.S. collected details of plots, terrorists


Rowan Scarborough, Washington Times, 19 May 2011

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s ongoing release of the Guantanamo Bay prison files, and large numbers of classified State Department cables, attempts to expose what he calls American corruption.

But supporters of the George W. Bush administration’s global war on terrorism say the nearly 800 Guantanamo files show that “enhanced” interrogations of hundreds of captured operatives at secret overseas prisons and at the Cuban prison amounted to one of the most successful intelligence operations in history.



The questions about why the U.S. knew so little before 9/11 and whether they could have discovered the information without detention or torture is not asked or answered.
