Those who would lightly dismiss the tactics used to “interrogate” persons held in U. S. hands would do well to listen to this.
I would especially recommend today’s interview:
Former Army interrogator Tony Lagouranis talks with Steve Inskeep about the tactics he used on Iraqi detainees, such as isolating them for weeks at a time. Lagouranis says that, overall, very little intelligence was gained through stressful interrogation tactics.
Especially chilling is Mr. Laguouranis’s description of how he gradually lost touch with his own standards of conduct.
