This chapter begins by identifying the impact that the ‘five techniques’ had upon security in Iraq and upon the detainees who were exposed to them. This reoccurrence of the techniques led to changes to written guidelines on interrogation and prisoner handling, and changes to training on the same subjects. These and other efforts made by the government and the military to reduce the chances of the ‘five techniques’ being used again are examined. The chapter also charts the course of the court martial faced by certain soldiers alleged to be involved, and the findings, recommendations and impact of The Baha Mousa Public Inquiry set up by the British government to investigate the circumstances of Baha Mousa’s death.
