Think the abuses at Abu Ghraib were just the work of a few guards turned to the dark side? Wrong.A Red Cross report, leaked yesterday, says that the "methods of physical and psychological coercion used by the interrogators appeared to be part of the standard operating procedures by military intelligence personnel to obtain confessions and extract information."Several military intelligence officers confirmed to [the Red Cross] that it was part of the military intelligence process to hold a person deprived of his liberty naked in a completely dark and empty cell for a prolonged period [,] to use inhumane and degrading treatment, including physical and psychological coercion, against persons deprived of their liberty to secure their cooperation."
