Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When a Sovereign State signs an international Treaty, it agrees to be bound by it and by the judicial processes provided for in that Treaty.  Thus it is not for SCOTUS to be the final arbiter on whether the USA or its servants commited torture.

The immediate problem  may be in finding a victim and a prosecutor in a position to take such a case in the first place.
