Torture Ban Doesn't Apply at Gitmo

From the Washington Post:

Bush administration lawyers, fighting a claim of torture by a Guantanamo Bay detainee, yesterday argued that the new law that bans cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment of detainees in U.S. custody does not apply to people held at the military prison.
This administration must get off on torturing people. That's the only possible explanation.

Torture doesn't work. The Israelis, a people who more than any other have a right to the 'ticking timebomb' argument for extreme interrogation, don't do it because it doesn't work. It gives bad information.

For Bush, it must be Pledge Week Heaven.
