Dr Leif Elinder wrote: “As much as the torture program itself, the inability to hold anyone accountable exposes the breakdown of constitutional forms of rule in the United States. Crimes have been committed, exposed openly before the entire world, and, within the framework of official political channels, absolutely nothing can or will be done about it. Under these conditions, it is impossible any longer to speak of democracy”.
