People who are running CIA – like CIA’s new director – are different now, American leadership is different. And as President has said several times "dark and painful chapter in our history” is over. That's a Big change. You can't expect this sort of change over night taking place in Russia and China, so we should give a little appreciation to the President Obama by believing "nothing will be gained by spending our time and energy laying blame for the past."

May be Goerge W Bush need to be prosecuted to allow this kind of incident. Otherwise it wont show enough transparency of US policy to entire world. Its not a joke. Although its seen vote is very less, it shows opportunity to say yes is higher .

I really admire President Obama for the fantastic and hard work he does. And I do wish him and the American people the best of everything. I do realize, it would be difficult to prosecute the people involved in what is, without question, torture! But, it is very important to make a strong statement that torture is not acceptable (prosecute all who were involved). It would encourage people confronted with such orders in the future to resist, knowing that they will be held responsible if they comply with such orders!

If this type of questioning will save more American lives then I say do what is required. These, people know that we won't do anything to harm them and they use it to their favor. The same with the ACLU getting in on the act, they used it to their favor, to appeal to the liberals, and these same ones that are released are being picked up back in their Countries, doing the same thing, with a promotion. Wake up people, you have to fight fire with fire, in this case.
