One of the most important documents of the U.S. torture program has just become publicly available for the first time. This is now posted on the website of the new documentary, Torturing Democracy (via Counterpunch). This document clearly specifies that the abusive interrogation techniques to be used at Guantanamo [JTF GTMO] are based upon the military’s Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape [SERE] program. The document is notable for its documentation of the extent to which abuse was bureaucratically standardized for routine use.
