"Mistakes were made"

The U.S. is on the carpet in front of the U.N. Committee Against Torture, and here's what they had to say:
The U.S. delegation told the committee, the U.N.'s watchdog for a 22-year-old treaty forbidding prisoner abuse, that mistakes had occurred in the U.S. treatment of detainees in the war against terrorism and 29 detainees in U.S. facilities in Iraq and Afghanistan had died of what appeared to be abuse or other violations of U.S. law.
Mistakes! Oops, sorry, I held that plastic bag over your head just a little too long. My bad.

The only "mistake" the U.S. made was in letting the evidence get out publicly and getting caught. Everything else that happened was quite deliberate. It was no "mistake."
