CIA Torture Report Incomplete as Key Documents Remain Withheld

Well, I think some of the details of who were mistaken identity detainees, for example Gul Rahman, who was frozen to death on the floor of a prison in Afghanistan in 2002, this report acknowledges that he was a case of mistaken identity. There was another guy named /d??n?t?gu?l/, who was the subject of a 2005 Steven Bradbury memo. Again, we had no reason to hold him. He was hallucinating. We made him crazy. So not just that they shouldn't have been detained, but the people we kept and killed and tortured, incredibly, were among those we kept.

And it took CIA three months, often, to figure out that they had the wrong person. So they'd keep them in these prisons. They'd lose track of them. As recently as last year, CIA was insisting that their numbers were correct, but they couldn't come up with the correct number of all the people they've disappeared. There's stuff in the report that makes it clear from the start that they intended to literally disappear these people. They wanted Abu Zubaydah to disappear for the rest of his life.
