dc.description.abstractIn this essay I will argue that the signature methods of interrogation used by CIA and military interrogators in the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) – “torture lite” techniques such as hypothermia and stress positions – may constitute torture, but that the question of their legality under U.S, and international law is not as straightforward as some critics of the Bush Administration maintained. I will take up only one thread in the complex discussion of GWOT interrogation practices and law, that of the boundary between torture and lesser cruelty.en_US
