    “President Bush has repeatedly defended the policies in the war on terror, saying as recently as last week that the U.S. does not engage in torture”

    Under the guise of extraordinary rendition, the above quote is merely a play on semantics. If the US is sending suspects to a country with the knowledge (constructive or actual) that torture will occur, then we are, by more than simple association, engaging in torture. Plain and simple.
