12. pretty damning evidence there
"The report shows, however, that the effort to identify and seek authority to use harsh new techniques started shortly after 9/11that is, in 2001, well before there were any prisoners on whom they could be used. It also shows that the effort had its origin in the White House, specifically in the office of Vice President Cheney and involved a series of people who had Cheneys confidence."

This just might suggest they knew there were no WMDS. The so called mushroom cloud conspiracy. We do know they were told ahead of time about the lack of evidence to support such positions as well as the link to Al Qaeda. I do remember a dinner that Bush attended where he "joked" about not finding them. Prosecute them ALL to the MAX.
