A letter by Professor Daniel J.H. Greenwood was published in The New York Times on April 24, 2009.
Ali Soufan writes that “it’s important to not allow the torture issue to harm the reputation, and thus the effectiveness, of the C.I.A.” But that is impossible. The C.I.A. tortured, and that harmed its reputation, and worse. All we can do now is to try to ensure that Americans never torture again.
