Retiring Breyer denies Guantanamo detainee’s efforts to learn about CIA black sites


Recommended Posts

Washington Examiner

A Supreme Court opinion authored by retiring Justice Stephen Breyer shot down the efforts by a longtime Guantanamo Bay detainee interrogated at CIA black sites around the world to gain access to information about the two men who waterboarded him in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Abu Zubaydah, an alleged al Qaeda member and associate of Osama bin Laden who was captured in Pakistan in March 2002, has been held at the U.S. naval base in Cuba since 2006 after having been interrogated at a number of secret CIA locations around the world, including one widely believed to have been in Poland. The Saudi-born terrorist, now 50 years old, sought subpoenas against James Mitchell, a former clinical psychologist at the Air Force survival school, and fellow psychologist Dr. John "Bruce" Jessen, who worked as CIA contractors to design the agency’s “enhanced interrogation program,” considered by some to be torture, and to help implement it, including by waterboarding Zubaydah.:snip:
