6,002. 7/7/2004

On July 7, 2004, General Counsel of the U.S. Navy, Alberto Mora “finished writing an extraordinary twenty-two page memo chronicling his wide-ranging and persistent efforts in the winter of 2002 to push the Pentagon back from an official policy of cruelty [regarding detainee interrogation]. The memo…was marked secret and kept from public view.”
