Re the March 14 article Panel seeks release of report on Bush-era interrogation: I’m not for torture. What Dick Cheney and certain American agencies have been promoting — torture as a legitimate American anti-terrorism policy — is a disgrace. I was initially stunned to learn that the CIA just called for criminal prosecutions of Senate staffers, because they read documents that the CIA had itself provided access to. Then when I thought for a moment about who was doing the demanding, I was not stunned, and that was the biggest shame of all.
These documents need to be published for all to see, and “we the people” need to renounce, or affirm, policies we don’t believe in.
