Obama: "We Tortured Some Folks"

During a press conference held today, President Obama said that in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, the United States did things that were wrong and crossed the line. He said, “We tortured some folks” and that it was wrong.

He was commenting on a Senate investigation on CIA interrogation techniques.


  1. THEY tortured some folks, not WE.

  2. I like how he always uses the "folksy" word "folks" to soften whatever he is talking about at the time.

  3. When do people get prosecuted and convicted? The last time I checked, torture was still a crime.
