President: U.S. `does not torture’

first_imgSECURITY: Bush defends questioning and detainment of terrorism supsects in brief meeting at the Oval Office. By Jennifer Loven THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – President Bush defended his administration’s methods of detaining and questioning terrorism suspects Friday, saying both are successful and lawful. The White House said Mukasey has not been cleared to read the classified documents Levin requested. The two Justice Department legal opinions from 2005 were disclosed in Thursday’s editions of The New York Times, which reported that the first opinion authorized the use of painful methods, such as head slaps, freezing temperatures and simulated drownings known as waterboarding, in combination.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

That’s our job.” Bush volunteered his thoughts on a report on two secret 2005 memos that authorized extreme interrogation tactics against terror suspects. “This government does not torture people,” Bush said. Meanwhile, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., demanded a copy of a third Justice Department memo justifying military interrogations of terror suspects held outside the United States. In a letter to Attorney General nominee Michael Mukasey, Levin wrote that two years ago he requested – and was denied – the March 14, 2003, legal opinion. Levin asked if Mukasey would agree to release the opinion if the Senate confirms him as attorney general, and cited what he described as a history of the Justice Department stonewalling Congress. “Such failures and the repeated refusal of (the Department of Justice) to provide Congress with such documents has prevented the Congress from fulfilling its constitutional responsibilities to conduct oversight,” Levin wrote. last_img read more
