    CIA used this prisoner as a means to try out its torture methods. Problem is, he was not actually in AlQaeda

    The Seton Hall report offers details of those tactics and how they were applied, drawing on statements from detainees, CIA cables and government documents. The torture used on detainees was even worse than what was officially allowed, the authors wrote.

    Abu Zubaydah "was subjected to treatment so egregious that the CIA sought and received official governmental assurances that their prisoner would ‘remain in isolation and incommunicado for the remainder of his life,’” Mark Denbeaux, the center's director and a co-counsel for Abu Zubaydah's defense, said in a news release.

    The CIA even arranged for his cremation in the event he died, assuring what they hoped would be his silence even beyond the grave. But with this report, he is silent no more.”

    Abu Zubaydah was captured in Pakistan in 2002 and accused at the time of being a high-ranking member of al-Qaida, an allegation that officials now concede was mistaken,

    I wonder who in the CIA is in charge of developing torture methods?

    Obama used info gleaned from CIA ‘torture’ in order to locate and personally kill Bin Laden in hand-to-hand combat.
