Table Of Contents: The CIA tortured a lot more people, for a lot longer, in a lot worse ways than even Bush and Chaney knew, lied to the President and Congress about the torture program for years, and gained little if any useful information from these crimes (no imminent threats detected, all claimed successes were bogus). Based on the evidence in the heavily censored Senate report, people who did the torturing, their superiors and the entire chain of command up to those in the White House are guilty of both War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. Mission Accomplices. Merry Christmas.
Footnotes: “Waterboarding and forced sodomy are "enhanced interrogation techniques" the same way shooting an unarmed suspect is "criminal justice." Torturing Abu Zubaydah “took precedence” over treating his bullet wound. One detainee was left nude from the waist down, chained to a concrete floor in the winter until he died of exposure. Victims were force fed rectally. One 'high value' prisoner was put in dark cell and forgotten there for 17 days. One man, suspected of having knowledge of pending attacks, was left in isolation and not questioned for 47 days. And about 20% of the victims were tortured to no end – they had no information and had been abducted and imprisioned by mistake. And so on.
