Are we negotiating with terrorists?

The Obama administration has decided to re-investigate the "enhanced interrogation" techniques used by the CIA in obtaining information from terrorists like those involved in the planning of the 9/11 attacks. The question is, why?

I don't think many Americans are outraged that the masterminds of the September attacks may have been sleep deprived, water-boarded, or even had their lives or their families lives threatened in a bluff to obtain information about more attacks. Obviously the administration is not responding to some big public outcry. So what's going on?

Is it possible that the administration has some kind of line of communication to the terrorist hierarchy? Is this part of some deal to avoid future attacks? Is the administration relying on the good word or Al Qaida for our security? Naaaa, there must be some rational explanation for their behavior. I hope it comes to light soon.
