Liars and war criminals.

"This government does not torture people," the president said.


White House press secretary Dana Perino said those briefed on Capitol Hill "are satisfied that the policy of the United States and the practices do not constitute torture." She refused to define, however, what would be considered torture, or off-limits, in interrogations.
This position is untenable.

If they're saying categorically they don't torture they need to define torture. Saying , "We don't torture, but we won't tell you what exactly that means" is the same as saying nothing.

They'd be better off with "no comment."
