From pages 51-54 (77-80, pdf) of the Torture Report, a model for “enhanced interrogation”:
(“Cooperated”: Such a sinister meaning attached to such a benign term.)
They thought through the use of torture they “had a reasonable chance at breaking” him.
Breaking: a much more appropriate term.
And which they accomplished. They broke a man. Through isolation and sleep deprivation and hooding and exposure and hanging they broke a man.
And this ” ‘became the model’ for handling other CIA detainees at DETENTION SITE COBALT.”
A model for how to break a human being.
