NYT: Peace Prize Laureates Urge Disclosure on U.S. Torture


WASHINGTON — A dozen Nobel Peace Prize laureates are urging President
Obama to make “full disclosure to the American people of the extent and use
of torture” by the United States, including the release of a long-delayed Senate
report about the C.I.A.’s torture of terrorism suspects after the attacks of Sept.
11, 2001.

The laureates told Mr. Obama, who was awarded the Peace Prize himself
in 2009, that the report’s prospective release has brought the United States to
a “crossroads,” and that he must do more to bring closure to an era when the
United States set an example that “will be used to justify the use of torture by
regimes around the world.”
