A nonpartisan panel declared Tuesday it was â€śindisputableâ€ť that the United States tortured detainees in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and said the nationâ€™s â€śhighest officials bear some responsibility for allowing and contributing the spread of torture.â€ť
The 11-member panel, convened by the Constitution Project after the federal government decided not to establish a truth commission-style examination of torture allegations, was led by former GOP congressman Asa Hutchinson and former Democratic Rep. James Jones.
So they are admitting it and releasing a report. I don't know how I missed this story early in the week. What should happen from here? I have a feeling that this will be met with head shaking and vague promises, and then ignored. Did I miss any reaction to this by the current or past administrations?
