From Time this week “ Detainee abuse was well planned”, confirmation that many of the “interrogation techniques” used on the detainees stems from techniques “the U.S. feared that the Communists themselves might use against captured American troops during the Cold War”,8599,1627229,00.html?xid=site-cnn-partner

“This troubling disclosure was made in the blandly titled report, "Review of DoD-Directed Investigations of Detainee Abuse", which for the first time sets forth the origins as well as new details of many of the abusive interrogation techniques that led to scandals at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and elsewhere — techniques that some critics contend the Pentagon still has not gone far enough in explicitly banning. Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, called the findings "deeply troubling," and signaled his intention to hold hearings later this year on the interrogation methods it describes.”
