We have failed as a nation in allowing torture. We will fail again if we don’t learn the full story and prosecute where appropriate as many of the guilty as possible.

[Vagabond Scholar: Torture Versus Freedom]

Blogs are producing much of the best writing about the current torture narratives in the US. Firedoglake is a group blog that is very strong on the political angles, and Balkinazation is often an excellent source of legal analysis and features a collection of “Anti-Torture Memos” by law prof Jack Balkin and others. There are many others; the above post from Vagabond Scholar is a nearly comprehensive bibliography and link-dump as well as a clearly reasoned, if impassioned, argument for investigations and prosecutions.
