The Associated Press is reporting that the information that resulted in Osama Bin Laden’s discovery and killing arose from interrogations of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his successor, Abu Faraj al-Libi, both of whom were held in secret CIA prisons and subjected to enhanced interrogations.

The New York Times is also reporting that the name was given by Guantanamo detainees. Whether the NYT is referring to Mohammed and al-Libi (who were later transferred to Guantanamo) or someone else isn’t clear.

Either way, the policy of obtaining information from terrorist detainees has been unambiguously vindicated.
