Bush defends waterboarding and torture

US President, George W Bush, last Saturday revealed the inseparable connection between imperialism and atrocities when he vetoed Congressional legislation that would have governed intelligence funding, because it aimed to stop intelligence services, such as the CIA, torturing ‘suspects’.

The bill was beyond the pale as far as Bush was concerned because it said that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) must question suspected terrorists under the rules of the US Army Field Manual, which forbids the controlled-drowning tactic in which the suspect’s lungs are filled with water, and other methods of torture.
