Torture Myths #2

Torture Myth #2:
The White House never condoned torture.

Fact:
Actually, White House lawyers and officials wrote several hundred pages of memos supporting, condoning, and perhaps encouraging, the use of tactics that could be considered torture. 1300 pages of these memos are even about to be published in book form. It just keeps getting worse and worse, eh?
