The American Civil Liberties Union on Tuesday sued two former Air Force psychologists who designed a CIA program that used harsh interrogation techniques to elicit intelligence from suspected terrorists, saying the pair endorsed and taught torture tactics under the guise of science.The lawsuit comes 10 months after the release of a damning Senate report that said the interrogation techniques had inflicted pain on Al-Qaeda prisoners far beyond the legal limits and did not yield lifesaving intelligence.Following release of the Senate report last year, Mitchell told The Associated Press that though he could not confirm his involvement with the CIA, he challenged the conclusion that the interrogation tactics did not produce otherwise unobtainable intelligence.In responding to the Senate report, the CIA defended the hiring of the two psychologists.
