CIA Black Sites

I felt physically sick after reading the New Yorker's article about CIA Black Sites. I believe that when we degrade others we degrade ourselves. The International Committee of the Red Cross

described the agency’s detention and interrogation methods as tantamount to torture, and declared that American officials responsible for the abusive treatment could have committed serious crimes. The source said the report warned that these officials may have committed “grave breaches” of the Geneva Conventions, and may have violated the U.S. Torture Act, which Congress passed in 1994. The conclusions of the Red Cross, which is known for its credibility and caution, could have potentially devastating legal ramifications.
