Former Attorney General Approved Torture

Secret documents reveal that former US Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez authorized harsh interrogation techniques that may break international torture laws.

The New York Times reported today that during his first month as Attorney General in 2005, Gonzalez signed a secret memo that,
"for the first time provided explicit authorization to barrage terror suspects with a combination of painful physical and psychological tactics, including head-slapping, simulated drowning and frigid temperatures." (NYT 10/4/07)
