10 specific coercive interrogation techniques--"the attention grasp, walling, the facial hold, the facial slap (insult slap), cramped confinement, wall standing, stress positions, sleep deprivation, use of diapers, and use of insects" with the verbal approval of waterboarding given two days later--subsequently referred to as the CIA's "enhanced interrogation techniques," were drafted by Berkeley Law's "Torture Professor" John Yoo.
