This chapter outlines the initial research conducted into the efficacy of the ORBIT model on detainees’ use of counter-interrogation tactics and the amount of evidentially useful information gained from detainees. Counter-interrogation tactics have been defined as a deliberate strategy adopted by a suspect to resist cooperating and may be consciously self-generated or learned from instructions or in training. This chapter outlines the research showing the use of counter-interrogation tactics with individuals from different terrorist groups and the effects of rapport-based strategies in reducing them. The chapter uses a real-world example of an interrogation with Saddam Hussein.
