CIA officials have testified about the torture practices of the agency for the first time in a newly released deposition video. The video reveals two senior CIA officials discussing their involvement in the torture. The ACLU had originally filed a lawsuit against James Mitchell and John Bruce Jessen accusing them of operating a “joint criminal enterprise” through their promotion of violent torture methods. Both of the men are former U.S. military psychologists who are regarded has the pioneers and architects of the CIA’s torture program.
