When pressed on why the CIA was using larger volumes of water than had been used in U.S. military training, one of the psychologists overseeing the program replied that was because unlike the exercises for American soldiers, the interrogation of Al Qaeda prisoners was "for real."  What military training?  This **** isn't taught in boot camp and this suggests that all military personnel engage in this!

But 23 pages of the report, much of it apparently dealing with the agency's use of waterboarding, remained redacted, appearing as page after page of blacked-out text.

Among the new disclosures was that the CIA in at least one 2002 instance employed a method known as "pressure points" -- wrapping hands around a prisoner's carotid artery. The interrogator "watched his eyes to the point that the detainee would nod and start to pass out" before being shaken awake, the report stated.

President Obama outlawed the CIA's use of so-called enhanced interrogation techniques in January, and ordered the agency's secret prison facilities closed. Obama this week approved the creation of a new interrogation program, drawing on experts from the FBI and other agencies -- all required to abide by the strict interrogation guidelines in the U.S. Army Field Manual.

CIA Director Leon E. Panetta issued a statement to the agency's workforce today saying that the release of the details was "in many ways an old story. The outlines of prior interrogation practices, and many of the details, are public already. . . . For the CIA now, the challenge is not the battles of yesterday, but those of today and tomorrow."
