Bush Declares: 'We Only Torture the English Language'
President Bush vigorously defended U.S. interrogation practices in the war on terror Monday and lobbied against a congressional drive to outlaw torture.No, the US government does not sanction torture. Instead it sanctions the use of sleep deprivation, pressure positions, electric shock, sexual humiliation, abuse, maltreatment, persecution, and dehumanization.
"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."
