As Suspected, Bush Adminstration At HIGHEST LEVELS Knew About, Condoned Torture

Well, well, well....seems at long last that the smoking gun has appeared, and as I have always suspected, the Bush White House at the highest levels were involved with, knew about, and condoned the torture of Al Quida suspects! Yet another set of lies fed to the American Public through the Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfield propaganda machine. The most corrupt administration in the history of the United States seems to get worse with each passing day. George W. Bush need not worry about his legacy...he will go down as the most deplorable, ignorant, dispicable president to have ever held the oval office...don't be surprised to see Laura Bush seek a divorce shortly after the couple packs up and leaves the White House.

Bush aides tied to talks on CIA interrogations

WASHINGTON: Senior White House officials played a central role in deliberations in the spring of 2002 about whether the Central Intelligence Agency could legally use harsh interrogation techniques while questioning an operative of Al Qaeda, Abu Zubaydah, according to newly released documents.

In meetings during that period, the officials debated specific interrogation methods that the CIA had proposed to use on Qaeda operatives held at secret prisons overseas, the documents show.

The meetings were led by Condoleezza Rice, then the national security adviser, and attended by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Attorney General John Ashcroft and other top administration officials.

The documents provide new details about the still-murky early months of the CIA's detention program, when the agency began using a set of harsh interrogation techniques weeks before the Justice Department issued a written legal opinion in August 2002 authorizing their use. Congressional investigators have long tried to determine exactly who authorized these techniques before the legal opinion was completed.
