    From the transcript: (link below)

    "We knew that Zubaydah had more information that could save innocent lives. But he stopped talking.

    BUSH: As his questioning proceeded, it became clear that he had received training on how to resist interrogation. And so, the CIA used an alternative set of procedures."

    A few paragraphs later:

    "Zubaydah was questioned using these procedures, and soon he began to provide information on key Al Qaeda operatives, including information that helped us find and capture more of those responsible for the attacks on September the 11th."

    I would like to know, in which jurisdictions these "procedures" were used.

    There is one other piece of analysis that I would like to offer at this point: Bush knew of the "procedures."
