Posted by Tanstaafl - White House, Pentagon to release interrogation memos - Jun 22, 2004:

The memos to and from Rumsfeld will show that while the water boarding technique was on a list of requested aggressive tactics, Rumsfeld did not approve it, officials say.
The list of requested aggressive tactics included:

Convincing a detainee that death or severe pain could be imminent for him or his family

Exposure to cold weather or water

Use of a wet towel or dripping water to induce a perception of suffocating.

And mild noninjurious physical contact such as grabbing someone's arm, poking them in the chest or light shoving.

Only tactic number four, mild noninjurious physical contact, was approved.

Oh my God. Rumsfeld authorized shoving.
