The Torture Documents

The torture question is one of the most important questions we, as American’s will have faced in our history.  It is the #1 moral issue in our lifetimes, and will be in the history books long after we are gone.

For me, I will attempt as long as possible to keep these documents readily available for use in refuting any argument that says torture was legal and had results.  It was NOT legal, no matter how the past administration(s) frame it, and it did NOT produce results, not matter who says so.
