God but I so love the fun of the Evil Liberal Media Trying to remember...
The CIA's current techniques for interrogating terrorism suspects are legal and do not include a widely condemned method known as waterboarding, U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey told Congress on Tuesday.
Mukasey declined, however, in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy on the eve of testimony before the panel, to say whether he considered waterboarding, a form of simulated drowning, to be illegal.

While over in the God Hating America Bashing Evil Liberal Land they say
Attorney General Michael Mukasey said Tuesday he will refuse to publicly say whether the interrogation tactic known as waterboarding is illegal, digging in against critics who want the Bush administration to define it as torture.
In a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, Mukasey said he has finished a review of Justice Department memos about the CIA's current methods of interrogating terror suspects and finds them to be lawful. He said waterboarding currently is not used by the spy agency.

Now doesn't tthat make you feel safer???
In america, we know we do not have any criminals, as long as we do not get bogged down in any of that semantics about what is crime!!!
Is all new happy day for all new people everywhere!!!
Since without getting bogged down in the details we are freed from the evil tyranny of Facts and Factualism, and the Terror Of TruthierNeffing...
So IF you were one of the folks who may have accidentally been tortured, try to understand that it really is merely your inability to be more flexible about your definitions. Thus proving that McCain, as we have always known, was merely one more whining liberal whining about his treatment during his military time, since of course, it would be problematic only if one defined it as being problematic, otherwise it is merely a part of the background happiness of Happy Land.
Don't YOU feel better about it all???
Yes boys and girls, THIS IS why you want to vote BushCheney2008, so that you can be freed from Factualists, and their Evil Reality Based Community!!!
