Fascinating interview by New Scientist with Michael Koubi, former chief interrogator with the Israeli security service Shin Bet, about his career and what he thought of Abu Ghraib. A very self-confident man, but somehow I believe him, except for the parts about there being little “physical pressure.” Somehow I don’t see that holding true in a lot of cases, although I would imagine folks are more susceptible to mental/emotional pressure than we often think.
