Mitchell and Jessen, who are on trial for torturing detainees related to terrorism, were paid some $80 million by the CIA and they had no experience with interrogation! This is something I have studied and John McCain stated clearly this was illegal and unAmerican.
Most importantly, enhanced interrogation such as waterboarding (submerging a person's head into the water so they almost drown) produces compliance behavior and confessions to anything to get it to stop.
It is notoriously unreliable. Former intelligence officials I have interviewed told me that the "good standard" of effective interrogation was how Hanns Joachim Scharff worked for the Nazis. He made a relationship of respect with the subject.
It is unfortunate that officials for the CIA have not told the American public honestly about mind control: what works and what doesn't work. The reason I can imagine for justifying torture is to scare others not to be involved with terrorism.
However, by violating the human rights standards that civilized countries have chosen to abide by, it opens the doors for horrible torture to be done by other governments to Americans and others.
Without government oversight, the CIA and other intelligence entities can have individuals how to believe in the ends justifying the means and can break their oath to the constitution and the American people. Kinzer wrote a book on Gottlieb, the CIA MKUltra researcher.
Marchetti wrote the first book on the CIA, entitled, The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence. The first edition was almost entirely blackened out, for "security reasons." Over time, with many lawsuits, the book is now almost all readable.
Trump supporters who do not trust the intelligence agencies' assessment of Russian interference look to historical examples that cause them to distrust. Part of what needs to happen is a massive "cleaning of the house."
We need intelligence agencies! I understand many things need to be kept top secret. That said, we need Senatorial oversight that functions beyond party, or ideology or involvement with religion with a living Prophet.
In 1974, Moon talked about putting members into government offices, agencies as part of the "plan" to establish a theocracy. I have copies of internal speeches Moon gave which I turned over to the House subcommittee investigation into KCIA activities in the U.S..
I write about "The Family" that Mike Pence is involved with. Why has the media almost entirely overlooked Mitchell and Jessen's deep involvement with the Mormon Church?
