Experts Say Bush’s Goal in Terrorism Bill Is Latitude for Interrogators’ Methods

The NYT has another article today about Bush's desire for the legal authority to torture, and again they do not use the word torture to describe what he is seeking. I find this to be a strange way of informing the public.

The word torture does appear in the article, but only in reference to the past experience of Senator McCain.


UPDATE: Well, I certainly shouldn't neglect the venerable Washington Post on this. Their article, "White House Offers New Proposal on Interrogations," also does not contain the word torture. I guess there are limits on the "he said, she said" style of political journalism, and that limit is seeking a quote from someone who would call this what it really is.
