...today, "U.S. Practiced Torture After 9/11, Nonpartisan Review Concludes" (my emphasis):
A nonpartisan, independent review of interrogation and detention
programs in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks
concludes that “it is indisputable that the United States engaged in the
practice of torture” and that the nation’s highest officials bore
ultimate responsibility for it.
Isn't torture a war crime?
