9/11 torture investigation recommended

Justice department asks for probe into possible CIA prisoner abuse


 

Some CIA employees and contractors may be prosecuted for crimes committed against prisoners after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The U.S. Justice Department has asked the Attorney General to reopen cases closed by the Bush administration and investigate alleged abuse. This comes while the Justice Department is set to release a 2004 report detailing the treatment of prisoners. That report is expected to show that interrogators violated U.S. anti-torture laws by conducting mock executions and threatening at least one man with death.
