US Want Interrogation Tactics Kept Secret

According to the Washington Post, and a few other sources, the Bush administration has told a federal judge that:

terrorism suspects held in secret CIA prisons should not be allowed to reveal details of the "alternative interrogation methods" that their captors used to get them to talk.

According to the Post, the administration now considers interrogation methods to be sensitive security secrets and that their exposure, even to the detainees' attorneys, could:

reasonably be expected to cause extremely grave damage.
This will, obviously, lead to all kinds of abuses by officials as they seek to expose 'terrorists' through their interrogation techniques, techniques that are known to be particularly brutal in their execution. Once again, the Bu$h administration displays its utter contempt for human rights by turning a blind eye to the most vicious of abuses.
