SPOKANE, Wash. – A lawsuit against two Spokane-based
psychologists dubbed the “architects” of an interrogation program used
on CIA detainees in 2002 will be heard by a jury in September, a federal
judge ruled Friday.
The lawsuit against James Mitchell and Bruce Jensen, who were
contractors for the CIA, is being brought by the American Civil
Liberties Union on behalf of three men who were held in secret CIA
facilities and interrogated for information the feds suspected they had
regarding terrorist groups.
One of the men, Gul Rahman, died while being held at a CIA facility
when he was short-chained to a wall in a diaper and died of hypothermia.
