“On January 9, 2003, [General Counsel of the U.S. Navy Alberto] Mora had a second meeting with [legal counsel to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld] Jim Haynes. …Haynes defended the tough new [interrogation] tactics. …Mora also warned Haynes that the legal opinions that the [Bush] administration was counting on to protect itself might not withstand scrutiny–such as the notion that Guantanamo was beyond the reach of U.S. Courts.”
