  • In 2014, the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program brought to light details of such detainee abuse (see http:// torture-report/). At the same time, the report also confirmed what scholars have long understood (Peters, 1996; Rejali, 2009): torture – the application of coercive physical, psychological, and emotional pressures – typically produces unreliable information.
