It wasn't torture, we were just trying out some new techniques

.....and even if it was, we're not going to respond to demands and questions about this issue either!
From the Center For Constitutional Rights
Don’t let Cheney bully the Senate. Join the Center for Constitutional Rights in writing your senators to demand an independent investigation into abuse and torture of detainees by clicking here now.

This week, Senator Carl Levin introduced an important amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act calling for an independent investigation into allegations of abuse in U.S. custody. Modeled after the 9/11 Commission, this panel would ask the hard questions the Bush Administration has been dodging for the past year.

Vice President Cheney has threatened to veto any bill that includes a call for an independent commission because the Bush Administration does not want their actions scrutinized by a truly independent body. They have repeatedly cleared themselves of any wrongdoing, despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.

Tell your senators to stand up and hold the Bush Administration accountable. Write them by clicking here or copy and past this URL into your browser.

A much softer read, but still valuable, is Erik Sarr's Inside the Wire about GITMO. Basically, the camp was so poorly ran that abuses almost had to follow.

The impression I get often is that they-- the Bushies --really do not know what to do in many cases. So in fact they are experimenting with policies and techniques.

Only of course they're doing this on living people at great cost to them--and also to our national reputation.
