Bush and Torture

Think Progress is whining about President Bush's recent admission that he "authorized" the torture of Khalid Sheik Mohammed.

I am going to give Think Progress the benefit of the doubt here and admit that is what Bush said.

Whether you agree with the use of torture or not, you cannot say that Bush hid from the truth. He didn't duck behind Clintonian, "it depends on what your definition of is is" type of equivocating. Was what President Bush did right? Well that is for history and Bush's maker to decide ultimately. I just happen to like candor in politicians that is all.
