WASHINGTON -- The CIA's internal investigator found that interrogators conducted mock executions of terror suspects and in one case threatened a detainee suspected in the USS Cole bombing with a gun and power drill, congressional officials said late Friday.
The disclosure is contained in a 2004 report by the CIA's inspector general, which has keep secret and is to be released next week, two officials told The Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the report has not yet been cleared for release.
The report's findings were first reported by Newsweek on its Web site Friday night.
In one case, interrogators brought a gun and power drill into a session with suspected Cole bomber Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, the report says. The homicide bombing of the warship USS Cole killed 17 U.S. sailors in Yemen in 2000.
In another episode, a gunshot was fired in a room next to a detainee to make the prisoner believe another suspect had been killed, according to the report, which a federal judge has ordered to be made public Monday in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.

""The CIA in no way endorsed behavior-- no matter how infrequent-- that went beyond formal guidance," said agency spokesman Paul Gimigliano. He declined to comment on the contents of the IG report."
My only question is, "Why not?" It appears that it was effective, with no physical harm coming to the
detainees murdering Islamic psychopaths.
Don’t see a problem here.
Do you really think it is acceptable to terrorize terrorist?
Well so do I.
Hey! Whatever works!
Americans have been subjected to this sort of thing for years. Good for our guys.
WHAT??????no milk and cookies?????
THIS CIA ABUSE IS UNTHINKABLE! I think the Obama should personally apologize to those poor, abused barbarians.
Seems rather mundane.
I don’t believe the “mock executions” were ever carried out to fool a prisoner into believing he was personally being put to death. This was making it look like other prisoners were being put to death.
Darnit, I want REAL ones.
The problem is what?
Sounds just like SERE School in Warner Springs, CA.
This Ship of State leaks.
Yep. Be the baddest SOB on the block. Simple as that.
Darnit, I want REAL ones”
My thoughts exactly.
The only scandal I see here is the executions weren’t real!
Too bad, it seems they wasted rounds. I’ve had a hard time getting 9mm ammo, and these guys were just wasting it!
I agree with the CIA approach, except for the “mock” part.
Intelligence is evidently NOT a part of Odooma’s administration priority. In fact, I don’t think there is ANY INTELLIGENCE in or surrounding the White House.
This is another story to distract us from the attempted Marxist conversion of America.
The power drill was a nice touch.
Very... Jack Bauer. :-)
And the security services of the rest of the world continue to laugh at us.
Ahhhh the ACLU.... I rarely read an article past a point that the aclu is mentioned. I have to be in the right mood to read an article that mentions those disgusting filthy treasonous enemies of America.
Hmmmm....! What you said. Maine had another school.
“Dont see a problem here.”
I kind of do, I think they should have actually executed them.
Heh... have to agree with you there... Can’t believe so many get upset with this but I guess they just assume that there may be some innocents among them. Highly unlikely is my opinion - especially if they were picked up in the fighting areas...
Great photo. Loved Curly. I wouldn’t watch unless he was on.
Of course that would be if we didn't live in the Bizzarro-world we've allowed liberals to define over the past many years.
The torture laws, even the loosened up ones put forward during the Bush administration, specifically prohibit death threats and fake executions. I do not have a moral problem with this kind of conduct, but it is specifically against our laws. As long as we are a nation of laws, law breakers may have to face the possibility of prosecution under those laws.
That depends on where it was done.
They all should of been shot. I would do it for free.
Am I shocked? Am I outraged? You damn betcha! I’m outraged that we didn’t actually use those items (and more)on those rabid dogs posing as humans. When each of them shows up in Paradise I don’t want them to have eyes to see, hands to hold, nor pecker to screw any virgins still attached to their mangy carcasses.
That’s pretty much how it works in a certain Turkish prision - for common crimianls — even got a well used Iron Maiden, complete with under floor water disposal!
They should have carried out ACTUAL executions
People who reveal our trade secrets to the enemy are committing treason and causing more acts of terror.
I don’t have a problem sub-contracting it out... Turks gotta work, too.
Yeah, it was really hilarious went the locals though they might sneek up the hill and kill a few of us after they shut our water off. Turkish arty made a few live round practice shots and that was that - we had water again. The power of persuasion.
Things took a turn for the worse when the locals in Ankara decided to riot - Turk AF got lots of pratice on their straffing runs - polishing off whatever the naplam left...
So maybe we should just read these nice jihadis their US Constitutional rights, bring in the NYU lawyers, some pizza, and just party?
