    let me find it. ah, here.

    and from their press release:

    "No civilized definition of 'reasonable' behavior can ever encompass acts of torture. Torture has long been recognized to be a violation of both national and international law, and no single legal opinion, no matter from what source, can change that.

    "The president said today that this is 'a time for reflection not retribution.' The United States has had plenty of time for reflection--there is very little information in the newly released material that hadn’t leaked out long before. He also said that the United States is a nation of laws. But laws only have meaning if they are enforced. The United States has laws prohibiting torture, and two-thirds of Americans support an investigation into what has been done in their name. That is not seeking to lay blame; that is a call for justice long overdue."

    Investigate. Indict. Prosecute.
