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.
