“Half of US intelligence info came from detainees”

Recently declassified documents reveal that half of all human intelligence the US government had on Al-Qaeda was discovered through detainee interrogations, Christopher Farrell from Judicial Watch told RT.

“It hadn’t been previously produced in any other record,” he said.

At the end of October, the US Justice Department released documents that revealed the FBI was investigating CIA prisons. On a 2002 visit to a CIA jail, officials found prisoners “manacled to the ceiling and subjected to blaring music around the clock”.
