Not Torturing People Is Hard Work

Interesting tidbit from Bush’s interview with the Radio-Television News Directors Association & Foundation, courtesy of The All-Seeing Eye Of Froomkin:

I tell you an interesting ethical dilemma that the President has to deal with. And that is, if you?’re in my shoes, and you thought Abu Farraj al-Libbi had planned an attack on America, would you use any means necessary to get the information from him? And the decision I have made is “No, we will not.” And let?’s just pray he doesn?’t have that information. And when I told the American people we’?re not torturing, we’?re not torturing. But try that on for an interesting ethical dilemmaas the President of the United States.

I think it’s pretty damn scary clear that deep down in his cold little heart of hearts, Bush is very much okay with torture, and has only (supposedly) renounced it because of all the goodie-goodies raising a fuss about it. Shorter Bush: “Okay, y’all got your wish, I’m not going to torture anyone – let’s just hope we don’t regret it.” Lovely.

    I would think torturing people would be hard work, too. What with all the nasty mean things you have to think up, to do to them.
