"The scope and reality of the United States' torture of detainees is now clear and undeniable.  We are anguished and humbly repent for the sins that were done on our behalf and in our name.  Torture is wrong.  It is a sin against God.  It is a sin against the humanity of those being tortured and those doing the torture.  We ask forgiveness for our nation."
