46. US has interrogation 'specials'
United States defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld last year approved 24 interrogation techniques for use on suspected Taliban and al-Qaeda prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, including seven that were not in the army's field manual for interrogation, said a Pentagon spokesperson on Tuesday.

Commanders were required to give Rumsfeld seven days' notice before using four of the additional techniques, but three other additional ones required no special notification, said Bryan Whitman.

Whitman said the defence department was weighing whether to make public the interrogation techniques authorised by Rumsfeld.

This would be "to further demonstrate that the policy of the United States has always been the humane treatment of those people in our custody".
