Torture Reports

Justin Katz asks a question a lot of others have been asking me too:

Regarding the email that Jonah posted as well as some claims that Andrew Sullivan has made on his blog, I’m wondering if y’all know what official

the worst individual events as representative, and I wouldn’t be

surprised if they mix accusations with confirmed incidents to make the

latter act as slippery confirmation of the former.

The document to which Rich Lowry just linked doesn’t appear to be it;

I’m sure I’m not alone among bloggers (and others) who would find a nod

in the right research direction in the Corner to be helpful.

Guidance anyone?
