U.S. Documents on Torture, Detainees
Several U.S. agencies have explored the question of possible abuses of people held in U.S. custody. Here are copies of the reports that NPR has obtained:

Pentagon Rules for Investigating Deaths in U.S. Custody

Defense Dept. Torture Memo

Army Report on U.S. Prison Abuses in Iraq

Staffers on the Senate Armed Services Committee say hundreds or possibly thousands of pages are missing from copies they received of Maj. Gen. Antonio Taguba's report on Iraqi prisoner abuses. Some committee staffers question whether the Pentagon is complying with the panel's hearings on the abuses in good faith. NPR's David Welna reports.
