CIA advised military on questioning at Guantanamo

In October 2002, a senior CIA official explained how to use harsh interrogation techniques on suspected terrorist detainees at Guantanamo, documents released at a congressional hearing today show. The CIA was authorized to use the techniques, the military was not, and some in the military foresaw problems. "This looks like the kinds of stuff Congressional hearings are made of," one wrote in an e-mail.
