5. Congress added an amendment to the Military Commissions Act which banned torture
Bush responde with a signing statement saying, "The executive branch shall construe (the law) in a manner consistent with the constitutional authority of the President . . . as Commander in Chief".

In other words, "Fuck you, Congress".

I don't see the point in them passing another law. Bush has set himself up as dictator, and there's only one remedy for that -- impeachment and conviction in the Senate with removal from office.
