OLC Memo re: effect of the McCain Amendment on the CIA's RDI Program (undated draft)


This document is an undated draft memorandum analyzing whether the McCain Amendment would prevent the CIA from using its "enhanced interrogation techniques." The memo concludes that the McCain Amendment would not do so because (1) the program is not arbitrary, and (2) the program does not "shock the conscience." The analysis relies in part on the use of similar techniques in SERE training. [OLC Vaughn Index #138]
