1. Hard to tell, all of the informational sites on Roberts appear to be

3. Range of voices calling for review of U.S. interrogation policies

Range of Voices Urge Review of U.S. Interrogation Policies

http://www.humanrightsfirst.org/us_law/etn/misc/call_co...

Since the summer of 2004, Human Rights First joined by eight retired admirals and generals has called for an bipartisan independent commission to investigate what has happened at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and the two dozen or so other facilities where the United States is holding and interrogating security detainees.
A range of voices from President Jimmy Carter to Fox News Bill OReilly have now begun to echo this call for an examination of U.S. policy:

Sen. Lindsey Graham
Bill Clinton
Jimmy Carter
Sen. Mel Martinez
Sen. Chuck Hagel
Sen. Joe Biden
Sen. John Warner
Rep. Curt Weldon
Rep. Nancy Pelosi
Tom Friedman
Bill OReilly
Floyd Abrams, Bob Barr and Thomas Pickering
Washington Post
