  1. US 'torture memos' could not be kept secret: Gates

    "Gates said a combination of congressional investigations and pending lawsuits meant it would be virtually impossible to keep the information in the memos secret.

    "I think pretending that we could hold all of this, and keep it all a secret, even if we wanted to, I think was pretty unrealistic. So we'll just have to deal with it," he told reporters.

    "There is a certain inevitability I believe that much of this will eventually come out and much has already come out," he said during a visit to the Camp Lejeune military base in North Carolina."
