105. I wish they would.
I put the smilie at the end of the question in my previous post to indicate I was not being entirely serious.

US intelligence agencies have a long history of facilitating and participating in the use of torture. It's not exactly new, but the "War on Terror" has certainly allowed them to increase its use without having to be nearly as discrete about it.

I don't know about the particular circumstances of KSM, but the commission did use material that is still classified - do you believe the information in the final report about Al Queda was mostly derived from the KSM interrogation transcripts?
