Torture methods – CIA style?

‘CIA ENHANCED INTERROGATION TECHNIQUES’

 

  • Water boarding: prisoner bound to a board with feet raised, and cellophane wrapped round his head. Water is poured onto his face and is said to produce a fear of drowning
  • Cold cell: prisoner made to stand naked in a cold, though not freezing, cell and doused with water
  • Standing: Prisoners stand for 40 hours and more, shackled to the floor
  • Belly slap: a hard slap to the stomach with an open hand. This is designed to be painful but not to cause injury
