“…while President [Barack] Obama has ended the use of torture in the U.S., he has failed to investigate those in the Bush Administration who established the policy and practices of torture and those who carried them out. In a speech in April [16] 2009, President Obama stated that ‘[w]e have been through a dark and painful chapter in our history. But at a time of great challenges and disturbing disunity, nothing will be gained by spending our time and energy laying blame for the past.’ ”

 – M. Cherif Bassiouni, The Institutionalization of Torture by the Bush Administration, Pages 260-261
