Work in progress

This is a work in progress within a series of related articles and subarticles. It is a subset of the general topic of interrogation, and also of the United States intelligence community. Interrogation, in turn, is a subset of eduction. Interrogation is not synonymous with torture, but interrogation does divide into noncoercive and coercive; some coercive interrogation uses torture.

There is enough complexity in the policies and practices of the George W. Bush Administration, in its conduct of what it terms the war on terror, to need a separate article, Intelligence interrogation, U.S., George W. Bush Administration. Note that there is a parallel structure of extrajudicial detentionextrajudicial detention, U.S.extrajudicial detention, U.S., George W. Bush Administration.

It's entirely likely that some of the material in this article will go to additional subarticles. Some may fit better in articles in other hierarchies. This is a start. Please collaborate; just source well or speak from knowledge. There is an amazing amount of primary documentation available if one looks; journalistic accounts are appropriate but in context, not as the only sources. Howard C.
