Gaining Intelligence from Torture

Sent this letter to the White House today:

Dear President Obama,

Thank you for releasing some of the government memos authorizing torture, Americans can take pride in your courage doing so.

Please establish an open, scientific investigation on U.S. torture and/or cruel/inhuman/degrading treatment.

The investigation's report should recommend actions in the best interests of our citizens and the people of the world toward a peaceful future.

I believe this official report is necessary to reaffirm America's commitment to the Constitution, international treaty obligations and human rights. It will strengthen U.S. national security, help to re-establish America's standing in the world, and may aid the long-term survival of our species.
