News from the Task Force on Interrogations: Army Field Manual is Enough

The Special Task Force on Interrogation and Transfer Policies today concluded that the Army Field Manual is enough to serve as the single standard for humane interrogation.

Human Rights First has been advocating for this for years. Read our press release – issued with our coalition of retired military leaders.

General Charles Krulak, who served as Commandant of the Marine Corps, says:

Implementation of the Task Force’s recommendation to maintain a single
standard of humane interrogation for all U.S. agencies will be essential to the
safety of our troops and to the success of our counterinsurgency efforts.
