B-B-B-Baby, Yoo Just Ain't Seen Mutt and Jeff
The CIA must now conduct interrogations according to the rules of the Army Field Manual, which prohibits coercive techniques, threats and promises, and the good-cop bad-cop routines used in police stations throughout America.
Except that the Army Field Manual does have a section describing a "Mutt and Jeff" routine. Media Matters reports that in 2006 Army deputy chief of staff for intelligence Lt. Gen. John Kimmons described the routine as . . . another name for "good cop-bad cop."
I think I see what happened, here, and we should probably cut Yoo some slack. He probably just mistakenly wrote "good-cop bad-cop" when he actually meant to write, "good cop, crush-your-10-year-old-son's-testicles-cop."
It's a pretty common mistake.
