FILE - In this Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2011 file photo, Libyan rebels' Tripoli military commander Abdel-Hakim Belhaj, center, uses his cell phone after an interview with the Associated Press in Tripoli, Libya. Human Rights Watch said it has uncovered evidence of a wider use of waterboarding in American interrogations of detainees than has been acknowledged by the United States, in a report Thursday that depicted in unprecedented detail the sweep of abuses in secret prisons under the Bush administration-era U.S. program of detention and rendition of terror suspects. One of those detainees is prominent Abdel-Hakim Belhaj, who emerged as hero of the Libyan uprising, leading the Tripoli Brigade that swept into the capital and captured the fortified compound that was Moammar Gadhafi's seat of power. He was detained and tortured in prisons in Malaysia with the help of the the British Secret Intelligence Service, and was detained for several days by the CIA in Thailand and before he was sent to Libya in 2004.
