A war crime .... without a doubt
The report found that Maj. Paul Burney, a United States Army psychiatrist assigned to interrogations in Guantnamo Bay that summer of 2002,
told Army investigators of another White House imperative: A large part of the time we were focused on trying to establish a link between Al Qaeda
and Iraq and we were not being successful. As higher-ups got more frustrated at the inability to prove this connection, the major said, there
was more and more pressure to resort to measures that might produce that intelligence.

1. Yep.
Using torture to help create a lie to engage in a war of agression makes it the worst kind of war crime.

2. The worst part of the crime is that all that crap about
national security was another big lie. They were torturing to cover their lying criminal asses.
