Rendition Revisited: Bush Signed Off!

Look what I saw in the New York Times.

Here's a quote:

In providing a detailed description of the program, a senior United States official said that it had been aimed only at those suspected of knowing about terrorist operations, and emphasized that the C.I.A. had gone to great lengths to ensure that they were detained under humane conditions and not tortured.

Suuuure they were. Want to buy a bridge?


In recent weeks, several former detainees have described being subjected to coercive interrogation techniques and brutal treatment during months spent in detention under the program in Egypt and other countries. The official would not discuss specific cases, but did not dispute that there had been instances in which prisoners were mistreated. The official said none had died.

See, if they don't die, then it's not torture! That's what our new Attorney General said, right?
