Evidence of a Known Quality

"We do not torture"
- George Bush, Nov 7, 2005

CIA interrogators apparently tried to cover up the death of an Iraqi 'ghost detainee' who died while being interrogated at Abu Ghraib prison....

The death of secret detainee Manadel al-Jamadi was ruled a homicide in a Defense Department autopsy ...adding that documents ... included photographs of his battered body, which had been kept on ice to keep it from decomposing, apparently to conceal the circumstances of his death.

After some 90 minutes of interrogation by CIA officials, he died of 'blunt force injuries' and 'asphyxiation.'
- CIA allegedly hid evidence of detainee torture, Nov 13, 2005.

I'm guessing that, even in Alberto Gonzales' world where torture can only be considered torture in the event of torturee organ failure and or death, this incident would qualify as evidence that George Bush is an unmitigated liar.
