    ...what those investigations would produce?  Or else I assume you would maintain the same position even if such an investigation were to provide proof:

    1.  That much of the waterboarding was done specifically in hopes of forcing a false confession to the existence of a Saddam/al Qaeda connection?
    1.  That the torturers at abu Ghraib were obeying explicit instructions, and acting with the knowledge of the Sec. Def.?
    1.  That one or more of the 100+ who died during captivity did so while being tortured?
    1.  That some of those who died were deliberately tortured to death in front of other interrogation subjects in order to make them more "compliant"?

    Again, you are either someone who:

    1.  Knows in advance precisely what such an investigation would produce, or
    1.  Doesn't care what horrors it might produce, or
    1.  Is woefully lacking in imagination as to what it might produce, or
    1.  Is a troll.
