3. The CIA was particularly concerned with protecting its agents from later prosecution if the matter came to light. Even after the then secret and now-notorious Bybee/Yoo “Golden Shield” memo of August 2002, authorizing extreme means, CIA interrogators continued to check back for step by step approval, which would seem to indicate they knew they were placing themselves in jeopardy for using torture.

4. Paul Kramer, “The Water Cure,” New Yorker, Feb. 25, 2008.
