The videos’ release came as the Associated Press reported hundreds of accused terrorists have been swept up in a secret network of prisons in Yemen, where U.S. military officials participated in interrogations where torture is routine and extreme.

The Pentagon acknowledged participating in interrogations in Yemen but denied any knowledge of human rights abuses.
