“Yeah, we water-boarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.”
– George W. Bush, ex-President and War Criminal
Of course, he’s a little late to the show, his V.P. admitted to it two years ago:
“I was aware of the program, certainly, and involved in helping get the process cleared, as the agency in effect came in and wanted to know what they could and couldn’t do. And they talked to me, as well as others, to explain what they wanted to do. And I supported it.”
– Dick Cheney, ex-Vice-President and War Criminal
When asked why he believed waterboarding was legal, Bush responded:
“Because the lawyer said it was. He said it did not fall within the Anti-Torture Act. I’m not a lawyer., but you gotta trust the judgment of people around you and I do.”
If that isn’t a “It depends on what the definition if `is'” is moment, I don’t what is. Blair may consider Bush the most honest politician he knows, but that sure as hell isn’t saying much.
