    "We do not torture"

    "We need an exemption from the anti-torture legislation"

    ??? Who's buying this?

    And how can the Senate "compromise" on torture legislation?

    Can you say morally bankrupt?

    In other words, "we are above the law". How can he get away with saying this?

    I'm sure it's fine. It's called, having your cake and eating it too. Bush comes out against torture, Cheney says we need it just-in-case. Win-win. :rolleyes:
