“On December 30, 2004…the [Bush] administration posted a document on the Justice Department’s Web site that sounded like a ringing denunciation of torture. …Bush and other top administration officials had expressed outrage at the lawlessness exhibited by low-level U.S. troops at Abu Ghraib [prison in Iraq] and had vowed to hold the perpetrators accountable. …Despite such calls for accountability, not a single administration investigation had questioned top policy-makers in the war on terror.”
