Leaked Red Cross shocking Bush era torture report: Read Online

Click here to read (or right click to download) in pdf format direct from The New York Review of Books.

NYRoB/Mark Danner: Torture is more than a repugnant series of "procedures" applied to the fourteen "high-value detainees" at "black site" CIA prisons—procedures described with chilling and patient particularity in this authoritative report. Torture is a critical issue in the present of our politics. By torturing, the United States has wounded itself and helped its enemies in what is inherently a political war. And by torturing prisoners, many of whom were implicated in committing great crimes against Americans, the United States has made it impossible to render justice on those criminals.
