"US Torture: Voices from the Black Sites" by Mark Danner

Mark Danner, writing in The New York Review of Books, examines a report by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) concerning "black sites," a network of secret internment locations used for detention and interrogation of "high value detainees." The ICRC report describes the methods and “enhanced techniques” used by the CIA to interrogate prisoners in this “global internment system” established under the authority of President George W. Bush following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
