Watching the watchmen

It looks like a Senate panel is going to investigate at least some of the excesses (Hell, crimes) of the Bush years.  I’m particularly interested in the review of “enhanced interrogation techniques” (i.e., torture) and their effectiveness.

Even if they prove to have been effective, I doubt I could ever support some of the extremes done as a matter of policy by the last administration.  But I’d like to hear what some of the supporters consider a “success.”  It would be the greatest tragedy of all if this nation were to sell a portion of its soul and get nothing in return.
