Submission + - ACLU Pries Confidential Toture memoes via FOIA

joelmax writes: In a move that has suprised many, Obama has released 4 "Torture Memos" to the public with only Minor redactions.

From the Article "Obama to release OLC torture memos; promises no prosecutions for CIA officials

In a just-released statement, Barack Obama announced that — in response to an ACLU FOIA lawsuit — he has ordered four key Bush-era torture memos released, and the Associated Press, citing anonymous Obama sources, is reporting that "there is very little redaction, or blacking out, of detail in the memos.""
