How was Donald Rumsfeld involved in torture?

Donald Rumsfeld, as the Secretary of Defense under President George W. Bush, was implicated in the controversy surrounding the use of torture and other forms of abuse against detainees in U.S. military custody, particularly in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.

Rumsfeld approved several controversial interrogation techniques for use at the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and in Iraq, including sleep deprivation, stress positions, and the use of dogs to intimidate detainees. Some of these techniques have been considered to be torture by human rights organizations and legal experts.

In 2004, the abuse of prisoners at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq came to light, which included acts of torture and cruelty that were widely condemned as violations of international law and basic human dignity. Rumsfeld faced criticism for his role in the development of policies that contributed to the abuse, and was the subject of lawsuits and calls for his resignation.

It is important to note that the use of torture is illegal under both U.S. and international law and is considered to be a serious human rights violation. The controversy surrounding the use of torture during the War on Terror has had far-reaching consequences, including damaging the reputation of the United States and its standing in the international community.
