Bush for torture

A letter to the New York Times:

Let me get this straight. Leading Republican conservatives have attached amendments banning interrogation using torture to the Pentagon's appropriations measure for the coming year. And President Bush has threatened to veto this defense bill unless these anti-torture provisions are removed?

What does it say about the present administration that it is so insistent on its right to abuse prisoners that it is willing to refuse to finance the entire national defense establishment if it doesn't get its way on that issue? Nothing good, as far as I can see.
