They Said No To Torture

The release of the Senate torture report summary—the most comprehensive account of the program to date—is an opportunity to reverse years of impunity enjoyed by the architects and perpetrators of the torture program for terrible crimes committed in our name. Impunity for torture has damaged the integrity of our justice system and our credibility in the world. Government must demonstrate its commitment to the rule of law and to the principle that no one, no matter how senior, should be beyond its reach.

Not everyone said yes to torture. The video below produced by the ACLU and PEN American Center features military personnel who objected to the program and tried to end it.
