excellent documentary resoource

A thorough collection of the memos and government documents (from 2001-2006)that allowed the Bush administration to redefine torture and employ the abuse later discovered at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and the "dark sites," where "unlawful detainees" were subjected to "enhanced interrogation." When this text is combined with the pictures from Abu Ghraib (available online) and Greenberg's edited collection of essays, The Torture Debate in America, (2006), the reader gets a powerful and depressing picture of an administration that had no respect for either international treaty obligations and American laws.
