"When we engaged in some of these enhanced interrogation techniques, techniques that I believe and I think any fair-minded person would believe were torture, we crossed a line," Obama said. "And that needs to be ... understood and accepted. And we have to, as a country, take responsibility for that so that hopefully we don't do it again in the future."
In the remarks, Obama was referring to a soon-to-be-released Senate Intelligence Committee report detailing the CIA's controversial interrogation and detention program following the 9/11 attacks.
The document is a nearly 700 page summary of the full 6,800 page report that was approved a year and a half ago by a committee sharply divided along party lines.

Also in the article:
“In January 2009, President Obama issued an executive order disavowing torture and established a Special Task Force on Interrogation and Transfer Policies. Details of those findings have never been made public.”
I find this quite interesting...
The fool should shut his mouth.
Lighten up Barry. Nobody shives a git what you think anymore. Even the commie libs ‘RATS are getting tired of all of your bull****. Your 15 minutes are winding down quickly.
muzzie terrorists crossed the line and killed 3000 innocent Americans.
I would have preferred to have tortured the muzzies a lot worse than we did.
The fool should have shut up years ago.The spew continues.
He really loathes this country, which he purports to “lead.”
I have been severally tortured by the government since January 2009. I would rather have been waterboarded.
he decries the torturing of terrorists who want to harm America yet he is an accessory to the criminal targeting of taxpaying Americans by his IRS...POS, not POTUS
He is no fool. He is destroying America from within on purpose and a majority of your fellow voting Americans helped.
Don’t speak for the United States Hussein, you are not even part of us you Indonesian muzzie.
When you are constrained by the “ROE” and the enemy is not, you just might not make it out alive. Kind of like bad guys carry weapons but law abiding citizens in a lot of places are forbidden to do so. Kinda bass ackwards ain’t it?
So 3 terrorists were water boarded and most of the Special Forces, Seals and such are water boarded in their training.
0bama has crossed all sorts of lines, including the Rubico.
Ok Barry so what’s worse our techniques or filming a video prior to cutting off the persons head. Then distributing it so the family has to suffer.
Also, these individuals aren’t “ folks” they are hardened killers....
I thought Obama said , We Tortured Some FOLKS(The members of one’s household; especially one’s parents and immediate family)
What does the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut know about “crossing lines”?
He has drawn so many “red lines” which have just disappeared into the sand, after they had been crossed and recrossed so many times, that whenever The Won is talking about “crossing a line”, the term is pretty much meaningless.
Talk about lapsed moral authority.
We crossed that line like we should’ve.
I would’ve water boarded every last one of em...with no name vodka or Ever Clear.
Nothing hurts like alcohol in your sinus and lungs...
More narcissistic Orwellianisms from this psycho.
