[JURIST] Army investigative documents released Monday disclosed the existence of "wish lists" of harsh interrogation techniques that intelligence officials hoped to use on Iraqi detainees. The techniques, cited in various e-mails in August 2003 between interrogators and army officials, included low-voltage electrocution, blows with phone books and using dogs and snakes. The correspondence was used in part to develop interrogation rules approved by Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez [JURIST report], then commander of US troops in Iraq. The documents suggest that these tactics were subsequently used on two detainees. One died in November 2003 after being stuffed into a sleeping bag, and another was badly beaten with a police baton in September 2003. The documents further indicate that there was confusion over what tactics were legal in Iraq, and whether Geneva Convention protections [UN database] applied to detainees.
