Bush's Attorney General nominee compares the Bush Administration torture policy to that of the Nazi's

Bush says: "We don't torture."

Bullshit. The recent PBS Frontline documentary shows how the Bush Administration neutered the McCain Amendment outlawing torture with a David Addington "signing statement."

The standards for 'torture' were rewritten by Bush Dept of Justice 'yes man' Jon Yoo who wrote the controversial Bybee memo in which he advocated the legality of torture and that enemy combatants could be denied protection under the Geneva Conventions

Not only did Michael Mukasey repudiate the so-called 2002 "torture memo" signed by Office of Legal Counsel chief Jay Bybee -- which appears to have survived in spirit, if not in letter -- but he compared U.S. torture to the Holocaust.
