Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
An Expert Reveals Chinese Origins of Interrogation Techniques at Guantánamo - NYTimes.com
What the trainers did not say, and may not have known, was that their chart had been copied verbatim from a 1957 Air Force study of Chinese Communist techniques used during the Korean War to obtain confessions, many of them false, from American prisoners.

Would  that be the Wolf-Hinkle report commissioned by Allan Dulles? that said that basically the techniques used by the Chinese communists were the same as the techniques used in US police stations to get people to confess?

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

No, the Hinkle & Wolff study was earlier and referenced in the Air Force paper, which the Times posted (.pdf) along with a batch of newly released documents (.pdf, long) from the Senate Armed Services Committee hearings on interrogation tactics.
