“On January 15, 2003, Secretary [of Defense Donald] Rumsfeld rescinded his general approval of these [enhanced interrogation] tactics [which he originally approved for use at Guantanamo on December 2, 2002], leaving open the possibility of specific approval in specific instances, and directed DOD [Department of Defense] General Counsel William Haynes to set up a Department of Defense Working Group to consider ‘exceptional’ interrogation tactics and their legal implications.”
