Witnesses testified about the Bush Administration’s detention and interrogation program for prisoners and enemy combatants. This was the first hearing on the topic since the release of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel’s (OLC) memos on the subject which authorized techniques many analysts considered torture.

In their testimony Mr. Zelikow and Mr. Soufan spoke about several strong objections to the torture policies and said that they were ineffective in providing useful intelligence. Mr. Addicot and Mr. Luban generally took the position that the actions were legal, even if objectionable. Mr. Soufan appeared behind a screen erected to protect his identity from cameras in the hearing room. close
