George Bush - United States of America President declares, in September 6, 2006:
"I want to be absolutely clear with our people, and the world: The United States does not torture. It's against our laws, and it's against our values. I have not authorized it - and I will not authorize it."
On Thursday, April 16, President Barack Obama authorized the release of four documents written by the Office of Legal Counsel in Bush administration’s Department of Justice.
The memos construct a legal justification for "The Torture Program" ("enhanced interrogation techniques").
As "the torture program" is exposed, more will come to light about those who participated in it.
An overview of the "torture program" is given in the documentary "Torturing Democracy" - HERE
