Short shackling is a technique that American interrogators have been reported to use in the War on Terror. According to a military report the suspect's hands are shackled to an eyebolt on the floor, so that the suspect is forced to lie in a fetal position or squatting position.[1] It is believed that the suspect's feet are also bound to the eyebolt, similar to hogtying, but this has not been confirmed in any government reports. This interrogation technique can cause flesh wounds.
