I just want to highlight one paragraph from today's Washington Post article entitled "In Obama's Inner Circle, Debate Over Memos' Release Was Intense"

One of those present said that when asked, the CIA officers acknowledged that some foreign intelligence agencies had refused, for example, to share information about the location of terrorism suspects for fear of becoming implicated in any eventual torture of those suspects. Sources said that Jones shared these concerns and that, as a former military officer, he worried that any use of harsh interrogations by the United States could make it more likely that American soldiers in captivity would be subjected to similar tactics.

I don't know how much more evidence we need to realize this was in fact torture. When other governments decline to help us because they don't want to be associated with torture, what else is there to say?
