The torture memos

You can download and read all of them on the ACLU's Web site.

Obama's decision not to prosecute CIA officers who "relied" on these memos to engage in torture may not be consistent with international law, which prohibits torture no matter what the circumstances and justifications. But the door is still open to prosecuting Bush administration officials who authorized and sanctioned torture, and we must insist that it stay open.
