Bush may have personally authorized torture

In addition to clusterfucking the mainstream GWOT, Bush appears also to be losing his "other GWOT": the Global War on Transparency.

The ACLU yesterday released an FBI document that makes reference to an Executive Order authorizing torture, including sleep deprivation, stress positions, the use of military dogs, and sensory deprivation through the use of hoods, etc.

Here's a link to all the documents.

Thank God for the Freedom of Information Act. Don't be surprised if the Republicans try to repeal it.

The most shocking thing is that the papers were scooped on this. The ACLU must be wondering why they're spending all that time and money fighting for the freedom of the press.
