    The main think I'm concerned about, is making sure future administrations and folks in the CIA don't think torturing folks is legal, acceptable, effective, or moral. To those ends, I think Obama should offer a full pardon to those responsible if they come forward with the truth, and if they don't, there should be full-scale investigation, and those found to be guilty should be prosecuted. Also, the law should be changed to make it perfectly clear that no government official can carry out or sanction torture under any circumstances, and that stuff like water-boarding is torture.
