    This is kind of confusing and I need someone to explain it to me.

    Are people complaining that people who've administered these torture techniques aren't been prosecuted retrospectively for something that wasn't clearly illegal when they did them?

    Or were these torture methods illegal already, and if so then what difference does the ban make?

    Good. Considering most of these people will have had their orders from people who've probably never got their hands dirty, punishing the actual torturers would be letting people off.

    This entire torture thing has become so confusing.

    I feel as though the people in charge, the ones who drafted all this stuff that they had to know was bullshit, should be punished in some manner or another.

    And now it seems that they are not going to do that at all. I guess it's basically hard to fight against the fact that an actual legal body sat down and decided that these things were OKAY. Especially when it's a legal opinion connected with such a respected office. But I feel as though they all did it on purpose, which I reckon has to be a crime.

    I'm tired of hearing about all of it, but I'm simultaneously terrified that people that gave these kind of programs the green light are serving on federal courts.
