Extensive Water-Boarding: We Need An Investigative Commission

Maybe you can make a case that low-level torturers shouldn't be charged - - though it would seem that the Nuremberg precedents say otherwise - - but the people at the top who issued the orders and crafted the twisted legal protections for the operatives and hundreds of water-boarding episodes absolutely need to be brought to justice.

The first step is an independent commission, with subpeona power.
