Washington, Jan 26 (Prensa Latina) The possible US decision to reintroduce illegal interrogation methods to prisoners falls today to the Department of Defense and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), according to President Donald Trump.
According to him, who will serve a week in office tomorrow, drowning and other procedures, considered as torture, works well.
However, Trump assured in an interview last night with ABC that he will let the respective Pentagon and the CIA chiefs, James Mattis and Mike Pompeo, decide on the existence of such practices.
I will respect what they say; if they do not want to do that, that is fine; if they want to do it, then I will continue until the end. I want to do everything that one is authorized to legally do, he said.
For the Republican president, it is necessary to fight fire with fire facing the decapitations of Americans and other crimes committed by the terrorist group Islamic State.
These statements by Trump occurred in the context of press releases about his government's presumed assessment of reinstalling secret CIA prisons abroad, known as black sites.
According to Mattis, US Secretary of Defense, building trust with the detainees and rewarding their cooperation is much better.
