bu$h*s Veto of Bill on C.I.A. Tactics Affirms His Legacy-NYTimes

Mr. bu$h* vetoed a bill that would have explicitly prohibited the agency from using interrogation methods like waterboarding, a technique in which restrained prisoners are threatened with drowning and that has been the subject of intense criticism at home and abroad. Many such techniques are prohibited by the military and law enforcement agencies.
