119 detainees were held at CIA sites between 2002 and 2008. This is 20 more than previously reported by the CIA.
The CIA wanted to leave Zubaydah in a small confinement box with a bug because “he appear[ed] to have a fear of insects.” Interrogators would then tell Zubaydah that the insect’s sting "would produce death or severe pain." Abu Zubaydah is a Saudi Arabian citizen currently held by the U.S. in the Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba. He is held under the authority of Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists.
A officers evoked the families of detainees in order to try and break them down during interrogations, according to the report.
In one instance, the CIA subjected a detainee, Abu Hudhaifa, to “ice water baths and 66 hours of standing sleep deprivation,”then released him because it was realized that, according to the report, “he was likely not the person he was believed to be.
At least five CIA detainees were subjected to "rectal rehydration," or rectal feeding, the Senate report reads, in order to keep prisoners alive who allegedly otherwise refused to eat.
At least 26 detainees were found to be held "wrongfully."
At least five detainees were subjected to rectal rehydration.
