Did the U.S. violate an International Ban on Torture?

An excellent article below from the Christian Science Monitor discusses the Convention Against Torture and the US responsibilities to it. Did we violate the CAT convention and use torture in Gitmo Bay, the CIA "black sites" etc.? And if so, what does everyone think about it? Is it the age-old question again: national security vs. individual liberities?
