UPDATED 18 APRIL – High-profile attorney says the declassified Department of Justice memos detailing interrogation techniques prove the U.S. did not torture

UPDATE: 18 April

Is sleep deprivation, grabbing by the collar and diaper-wearing torture?

Obama said Thursday that the U.S. won’t prosecute CIA officials who used the techniques and ordered the memos rescinded. The CIA interrogators, some of whom were contractors, weren’t identified in the partially censored documents.

“This is a time for reflection, not retribution,” Obama said. “In releasing these memos, it is our intention to assure those who carried out their duties relying in good faith upon legal advice from the Department of Justice that they will not be subject to prosecution.”

While civil rights groups applauded Obama for releasing the memos, some expressed frustration with his promises of immunity for those who followed the memos’ guidance — and predicted that it would amount to blanket cover for all former Bush administration officials. Read More

Obama change his policies so much that no one knows what he will or won’t do for self political power!

At least one high-profile attorney says the declassified Department of Justice memos detailing interrogation techniques prove the U.S. did not torture, even as the ACLU and some lawmakers claim the memos are proof positive the Bush administration did.

David Rivkin, a constitutional lawyer and member of the Council on Foreign Relations, released a statement Friday saying the release of four memos provides a “great benefit” to the former president.

“This data is analyzed in great detail to establish that the use of these techniques does not inflict either physical or psychological damage,” said Rivkin, who served in the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. “The conclusions (the) memos reach that the specific interrogation techniques used by the CIA did not constitute torture are eminently reasonable.” Read More

We all know that the liberals will not accept anyones word for it because they hate President Bush!
