As far back as 2004, the CIA began moving away from capturing and detaining
suspected terrorists in favor of killing them via drone strikes. It was a
decision spurred in large part by the CIA's own 2004 investigation into the
agency's abuse of detainees. A report from the CIA's inspector general had
raised the possibility that the CIA's interrogation techniques violated the
UN Convention Against Torture, and that individual officers might be liable
for criminal prosecution. That torture report from 10 years ago was perhaps
the single most important reason for the C.I.A.’s shift from capturing to
killing terrorism suspects.
