White House declines to rule out torture

In an important clarification of
President George W. Bush's earlier statement, a top White House official refused to unequivocally rule out the use of torture, arguing the US administration was duty-bound to protect Americans from terrorist attack.

The comment, by US national security adviser
Stephen Hadley, came amid heated national debate about whether the
CIA and other US intelligence agencies should be authorized to use what is being referred to as "enhanced interrogation techniques" to extract from terror suspects information that may help prevent future assaults.

One thing we did get from the Abu Ghraib humiliations and torture cases was the start of the beheading epidemic in Iraq.

Of course there is no proof but their word that they actually stop some terrorism.

So no proof.

White House declines to totally rule out torture.
