"We need to read the page before we turn the page."
A thorough review of all information obtained through torture is warranted.
A truth commission could also perform a sophisticated cost-benefit analysis which would assess the damage done to U.S. interests due to the use of torture against the gains made in the interrogation room when these methods were employed. My guess is that the unintended consequences of employing these techniques far outweighs the benefits.
Definitive answers to these questions - rendered by a non-partisan commission with unimpeachable integrity - would help end the public debate in this country about the use of torture.
As Senator Leahy has said, "we need to read the page before we turn the page."
