>>> this next story would have received broad coverage were it not for this terrorist bombing in boston. but a bipartisan review board has found it indisputable, in their words, that the united states has engaged in the practice of torture since 9/11. they say the highest officials in our country bear responsibility and share responsibility for it. the report says torture has damaged the standing of our nation, on top of potentially increasing the danger to u.s. military personnel taken captive. on top of all of it, the commission found no evidence that torture ever yielded any key information, no information that we are any safer because of it.
