DOD Memo: Aggressive Interrogation-Historical Record

DOD Memo from an assistant legal advisor. The memo is redacted, however, it appears to disagree with aggressive techniques approved by the Secretary of Defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff and Southern Command, stating that the CITF policy precludes participation in aggressive interrogation techniques and only approves rapport building interview strategies.
