Following the attacks on 11 September 2001 the US government has treated detainees as individuals from whom information could be extracted rather than to whom process was due. Its use of water torture is now officially out in the open along with the revelation that videotapes of CIA interrogations have been destroyed. Amongst other things, this document calls on the US government to repudiate and investigate the CIA's use of "waterboarding" and to end the use of secret detention.
