Sixteen declassified cables were released on Friday that detail the enhanced interrogation techniques used at a CIA black site in Thailand during the time it was overseen by CIA director Gina Haspel in 2002. The cables focus on the interrogation of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi national who is accused of planning the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole; they describe the use of interrogation techniques including waterboarding, sleep deprivation and wall-slamming. The cables were obtained through a Freedom of Information lawsuit filed by the National Security Archive.
