On May 30, 2009, even retired Army Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, the top U.S. commander in Iraq from 2003-2004 called for a truth commission to investigate Bush-era interrogation and torture tactics. He went on to say:
“during my time in Iraq there was not one instance of actionable intelligence that came out of these "interrogation techniques".”

“If we do not find out what happened,then we are doomed to repeat it.”(HERE)
