Not that its any revelation but Bush's defenseof his AG nominee at the Heritage Foundation was rather extraordinary.

"It's wrong for congressional leaders to make Judge Mukasey's confirmation dependent on his willingness to go on the record about details of a classified program he has not been briefed on,"

Now you can correct me if I'm wrong but no one asked Mukasey about a classified program. they simply asked if waterboarding is torture. But Bush is confirming that to discuss waterboarding is to discuss the "details of a classified program."

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    conclude that agents of the U.S. Government have waterboarded prisoners.  The right-wing feels it has the privilege to redefine words to turn its lies into the truth.  This is the same right-wing that criticized Bill Clinton for redefining 'sexual relations' to get away with perjury.

    Any decent human being (not a Bushie, U.S. Senator or non-Olbermann journalist) feels that if you cover someone's nose and mouth so they suffocate and almost die, you're engaging in torture.

    shame that Barbara Bush and her wimpy husband did not believe in "Rain Barreling ".Same deal with far better results.
