Bush Responds to DOJ Terror Memos

Hosted by

Yesterday's New York Times revealed the existence of two previously secret Justice Department memos on techniques for interrogating suspected terrorists.  Contrary to public statements calling torture "abhorrent," they explicitly authorized head-slapping, simulated drowning and exposure to extreme cold. After Democrats demanded to see them, President Bush repeated his insistence that "the US does not torture." Scott Shane is one of the authors of yesterday's story.
