There is an unprecedented amount of information available regarding the "enhanced interrogation techniques" being used to train military personnel on the prisoners of Guantanamo Bay, such as this article in the New York Times titled "China Inspired Interrogations at Guantánamo"
These techniques are listed on a chart called "Coercive Management Techniques" are exactly the same as Albert Biderman's 1957 chart of Communist Coercive Methods for Eliciting Individual Compliance, and even Berkley Law reports in this document
Many interrogation techniques employed at Guantánamo Bay and elsewhere were specifically designed to exploit psychological weaknesses of detainees. Rather than “break” the body, these techniques could “break” the minds of detainees(pdf)
It seems the media is purposely not linking these subjects and suppressing the information, otherwise, I believe the public would be outraged instead of mindlessly condoning torture, or simply not even caring that innocent people are being destroyed.
