Abstract:

"In December 2002, Donald Rumsfeld authorized new interrogation techniques for Guantanamo and opened the door to torture and other practices that later migrated to Abu Ghraib." "Torture Team uncovers the real story behind Rumsfeld's notorious memo, a tale of fear and abuse, deception and ideology that reveals how the path leading to torture began with Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, and their lawyers. Traveling around America to interview key players, many whose voices have never previously been heard, renowned international lawyer Philippe Sands pieces together the role of advisors closest to the White House and shows how they violated the law in the name of security as other struggled to stop the abuse."--Jacket.
