CIA Cable: Eyes Only - Approval Process for Psychological Assesments

This cable states that the use of EITs requires that a psychological assessment of records, made only by a staff psychologist be completed about the proposed subject before techniques are authorized, and that psychological interrogation assessments continue to be made throughout the detention and interrogation process. The cable also states that under newly approved guidelines, there must be at least one Special Mission Psychologist present at a site during the use of EITs who is not physically participating in the administration of the techniques.
