Former FBI Interrogator Tells ‘60 Minutes’ About Emergence of Torture Tactics
Posted on Sep 17, 2011
Little is publicly known about the security investigations that followed the 9/11 terrorist attacks (as Robert Scheer illuminated in his column last week), but a recent “60 Minutes” interview with a former FBI agent shed some light on what had been going on behind the scenes.
Former FBI agent Ali Soufan, now a private security consultant in New York, spoke publicly for the first time with CBS’ Lara Logan about how he interrogated al-Qaida members after the attack and witnessed what became the beginning of a long history of “enhanced interrogation techniques.”
