The documents provide additional evidence as to how Haspel personally supervised the torture, including waterboarding, of CIA prisoner Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri in 2002 at a CIA black site in Thailand, and drafted cables ordering the destruction of videotape evidence of another prisoner’s waterboarding.
