They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Jimmy Carter: US tortures people

Former US President Jimmy Carter has alleged that the Bush administration tortures prisoners in violation of international law.

President George W Bush recently defended his administration's techniques used to interrogate terror suspects, insisting that "this government does not torture people".

However, Carter disagreed with Bush in an interview with CNN. Link
