Bush Threatens to Veto Anti-Torture Measure

The Category 5 President, as Bill Maher has so wonderfully called him, has not yet vetoed any legislation in his Presidency. But now he's threatened to veto the current Defense Department appropriation if it contains an amendment banning torture by any American forces anywhere in the world. Yes, friends, he's taking a stand for the right of American forces to torture other human beings, a tactic we didn't resort to even with captured Nazis in the Second World War.

I've said it before: George W. Bush is a national disgrace.

And a son of a bitch, too.
