Interview with Gabor Rona, international legal director with Human Rights First, conducted by Scott Harris
It wasn’t long after President Obama’s May 1 announcement that a U.S. Navy Seal commando team had killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, that former members of the Bush administration and their allies began celebrating the role they claimed U.S. torture of terrorist suspects had played in locating the al Qaeda leader.

It's clear that those techniques that the CIA used worked." Story continues
