The New York Times is reporting that the Obama administration has decided to release the “torture memos” written by the Bush Department of Justice, that justify harsh interrogation techniques.

It’s not clear from the Times‘s unsourced report whether this is a compromise, in which only some of the memos will be released, or whether they all will.

Today is the deadline for the administration to weigh in on a lawsuit filed by the ACLU, which is seeking the memos.

We’ll have more as things become clearer.
