  •  The reason for tribunals (none)
    As we all know here, torture is not only unreliable, but an affront to our basic decency. Further, evidence obtained through torture is not supposed to be used in a court of law (at least officially, and to date).

    This is why I believe the administration is/was trying to get away with using secret military tribunals instead of the court system.  Betcha the tribunals would not reject statements made at the height of desperation while being whipped and having your fingernails ripped from your hands...

    Beware the everyday brutality of the averted gaze.
