NYT on interrogation methods (emphasis added):

Many of the [coercive interrogation] techniques that have come in for such criticism were based on those used in the military’s Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape training, or SERE, in which for decades American service members were given a sample of the brutal treatment they might face if captured.

Because the training was developed during the cold war, the techniques later adopted by the C.I.A. and Special Operations officers in Iraq were based, at least in part, on how the Soviet Union and its allies were believed to treat prisoners. Such techniques included prolonged use of stress positions, exposure to heat and cold, sleep deprivation and even waterboarding.

Я так понимаю, что никаких особых оснований для того, чтобы полагать, что Советский Союз мог бы применять такого рода методы допросов, строго говоря, не было. А вот американцам разработки, как мы видим, пригодились...
