Mixed Messages on Torture

From YahooNews

President Bush vigorously defended U.S. interrogation practices in the war on terror Monday and lobbied against a congressional drive to outlaw torture.

"There's an enemy that lurks and plots and plans and wants to hurt America again," Bush said. "So you bet we will aggressively pursue them but we will do so under the law."

He declared, "We do not torture."
Meanwhile, back in Washington DC:
Over White House opposition, the Senate has passed legislation banning torture. With Vice President Dick Cheney as the point man, the administration is seeking an exemption for the CIA.

When I heard this, the only thing I could think of was that when the President said "we" he was referring to Laura and himself. The two of them are probably too busy to be torturing anyone. The CIA, on the other hand, has plenty of time and talent.
