Letter from Jack Goldsmith to Scott Muller re: CIA's Request Reaffirming Legal Principles Applicable to CIA Detention and Interrogation

June 10, 2004 | OLC | ACLU-RDI 4568

This letter from Jack Goldsmith to Scott Muller relates to Muller's request that OLC "reaffirm three pages of bullet points" titled "Legal Principles Applicable to CIA detention and Interrogation of Captured Al-Qa'ida Personnel." Goldsmith responds that the "Legal Principles . . . did not and do not represent an opinion or a statement of the views of this Office," and that the CIA needs to put their own views in writing before the OLC will issue their written opinion.  [OLC Vaughn Index #29]
