ACLU Files Lawsuit Seeking Disclosure of Secret Documents On Torture

On Thursday, the ACLU filed a lawsuit in New York seeking the disclosure of still-secret records relating to the torture of prisoners held by the US overseas.

The requested documents include legal memos authored by John Yoo & Steven Bradbury as well as document sent by the Bush administration to the CIA.

The government has failed to turn over the documents even after a Freedom of Information Act request was filed in a December 2008.

Jameel Jaffer, the Director of the ACLU’s National Security Project said: “The information already in the public domain makes clear that the torture policies were devised & developed at the highest levels of the Bush administration. But there are still unanswered questions about precisely what the policies permitted, how they were implemented and who specifically signed off on them.” This is the ACLU press release.
