Went I worked Sex Crimes, the defendant always had to be protected from the family members of the victim, even if he was just a suspect, so yes torture is wrong, but many believe the ends justify the means, this why I want to see the rest of the report, it will not justify the torture just tempers the guilt of knowing of or doing the procedure.

What we need to worry about (for our soldiers) is that you get what you give. It massively increases the odds of our people being tortured down the line.I read through several pages of the report and it was disturbing. They said the full report is 6,000 pages. This is less than 10% of that.It will be interesting to see if our embassies or our soldiers become targets for those who want to exact some revenge.
