RECAP: Bush: I Personally Authorized Torture Of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed


Bush staunchly defended the program, saying it saved American lives — despite interrogators’ claims to the contrary. He waved away the debate over torture by saying dismissively, “Look, I understand why people can get carried away on this issue.”
What’s more, a former Pentagon intelligence analyst told Vanity Fair that “K.S.M. produced no actionable intelligence“; another former CIA official, who read all the reports from KSM’s interrogation, said, “90 percent of it was total f*cking bullsh*t.”

It is almost certainly true that Bush knew the attacks of 911 were an Inside Job. The fact that he approved torture methods against these individuals, who had nothing to do with the attacks, will not go well for him at the trials.
