Enhanced interrogation under George W. Bush

Can anyone recommend neutral documentation of "enhanced interrogation" / "torture" under the Bush presidency, the changes during the War on Terror?

I'm looking for a news magazine style article that calmly explains America's changes in policy about prisoner interrogation in the post-9/11 era. Something that documents what new techniques were used, the reasons for those techniques, and what executive orders, DoJ memos, etc justified those. This topic is hugely politicized (I have strong opinions myself) but I'm looking for something detached from that which just documents undisputed facts of Bush-era interrogation policies. E.g: a summary of John Yoo's memos and the role they played, not a screed indicting him. I realize the story is changing rapidly, particularly given the completion of the Senate Intelligence Committee report, but would prefer something with a bit of historical perspective over something up-to-the-minute.
