Maybe Logic Can Help

Brian Tamanaha

1. "Waterboarding is torture" (President Obama statement a week ago, world opinion)

2. "We waterboarded three prisoners" (statements by CIA, Cheney, Yoo, etc.)

3. "We did not torture prisoners." (statements by Bush, Rice, etc.)

No one disputes number 2, so number 1 is wrong or number 3 is wrong. You decide.
