bush's torture flip-flop

The LJ Democrats group offers this gem spoken by President Bush back in July 2003:
"The United States is committed to worldwide elimination of torture, and we are leading this fight by example. Freedom from torture is an inalienable human right. Yet torture continues to be practiced around the world by rogue regimes, whose cruel methods match their determination to crush the human spirit."
What happened to Bush's convictions? For those that missed it, Congress passed the infamous "torture bill" before the election season recess.

Bush is such an a-hole hypocrite.

Tim Barnwell just published an updated position on getting out of Iraq that includes a good position on torture.
