Where can I find information on interrogation techniques used by the Defense Department?

In January 2007, the Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, U.S. Senator Carl Levin, set up an investigations unit of the committee staff which spent more than a year-and-a-half conducting the investigation into the origins of detainee abuses. They reviewed hundreds of thousands of documents and conducted extensive interviews of more than 70 individuals, including a number of senior civilian and military officials.

Details of the investigation can be found on Senator Levin's site at: http://www.levin.senate.gov/issues/treatment-of-detainees-in-us-custody.
