The Bush administration sends suspected terrorists to foreign countries for interrogation that may involve torture. These transfers have been carried out by the Central Intelligence Agency under broad authority that has allowed it to act without case-by-case approval from the White House or the State or Justice Departments, according to current and former government officials. This has been going on since just after the September 11 attacks.
Translation: we may say we don't torture people, but we send them to other countries so they'll do the job for us. No opinion from me at this point on the subject of torture itself (your comments are welcomed, as always) -- but I don't like the government saying one thing and doing another.
