Memo from James T. Hill, General
U.S. Army Commander, to Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff
Page 1 of 1

General Hill expresses frustration that "some detainees have tenaciously resisted our current interrogation methods," and sends a proposed list of suggested techniques, with a caveat that he is "undercertain whether all techniques in the third category are legal under US law, given the absence of judicial interpretation of the US torture statute."

He also makes clear that he is "particularly troubled by the use of implied or expressed threats of death of the detainee or his family."
