“After spending months investigating the Agency’s [CIA’s] interrogation practices, the special review [by the CIA Inspector General John L. Helgerson, released on May 7, 2004] had concluded that the CIA’s techniques constituted cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment, in violation of the international Convention Against Torture. But [CIA General Counsel Scott] Muller insisted that every single action taken by the CIA toward its detainees had been declared legal by [former Deputy Chief of the Office of Legal Counsel] John Yoo.”
