Bush Administration's Human Rights Record Exposed

Daya Gamage - US Bureau Asian Tribune

Washington, D.C., 07 October ( Larry Cox, Amnesty International USA's executive director, issued the following statement in response to President Bush's statement October 5 that the United States does not torture people:

"The Bush administration continues to astonish. Its own State Department has labeled waterboarding torture when it applies to other countries.

Yet in President Bush's legal wonderland, water boarding is renamed an enhanced interrogation technique. President Bush continues to assert that his administration is complying with U.S. and international law, yet every available fact has proven the contrary. Torture by any other name is still torture -- a new name does not make the practice acceptable or even palatable."
