Yes, that's FUCK, in BIG FAT LETTERS.

What else do you say to this?

The exact circumstances surrounding the dealings between Haynes and Yoo that led to the development of this memorandum are unclear. However, it is clear that Haynes had previously authorized the use of the torture techniques, and had secured an order from Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld authorizing them.

Following the implementation of these techniques, more than 108 detainees died in detention. In a large number of these cases, the deaths have been ruled a homicide and connected to torture.

I know: It was done in our name and we didn't stop it.

And if you look deeper, only 26 of the 108 were investigated for homicide. The rest were natural cause, insurgent bombings, riots in the prisons, etc. Not good, but considering how many prisoners we had, and the lack of a plan, it could have been worse.
