Bush, due to undergo a little torture at the hands of doctors tomorrow, has had a sudden access of compassion -- at least officially. Of course, he "declines to say" whether the CIA uses torture at this time. He simply wants to be on record as deploring:
Torture or other acts of violence serious enough to be considered comparable to murder, torture, mutilation and cruel or inhuman treatment.
Willful or outrageous acts of personal abuse done to humiliate or degrade someone in a way so serious that any reasonable person would "deem the acts to be beyond the bounds of human decency, such as sexual or sexually indecent acts undertaken for the purpose of humiliation, forcing the individual to perform sexual acts or to pose sexually, threatening the individual with sexual mutilation.
Acts intended to denigrate the religion, religious practices, or religious objects of an individual.
And then he got into the helicopter, waved, and flew off.
