    George Bush has claimed the use of Torture---specifically waterboarding---in his biography led to information that was used to avert attacks on Britain.

    The British government, which was not in power at that time [and is Conservative, incidentally], states that this is not true.

    The use of torture was one of the many ways in which the response to 9/11 corrupted our democracy while purporting to protect it. Those who made these decisions need to be brought to justice.

    funny who after WWII we convicted Japan and German of torture by waterboard...but I guess if the GOP/Bush think it is ok...well God must bless it.
