The science of interrogation

The Army Field Manual is the guidebook for US military interrogators listing techniques they’re authorized to use in questioning detainees. Soon after Barack Obama moved into the Oval Office in 2009, he issued an executive order that required all U.S. government interrogators to abide by the manual, which prohibits waterboarding, prolonged sleep deprivation and other 'enhanced interrogation techniques' used by the CIA after 9/11. Yet according to experts, the manual is useless because it is unscientific.
