WHOA! Talk about a Friday afternoon news dump! Caught this in the Post right before I left the office.
President Bush today signed an executive order governing the interrogation of terrorism suspects by the CIA and barring torture, degrading treatment and serious acts of violence, the White House announced.
Friday afternoon announcements are reserved for things the administration wants to hide; I love that they want to hide the fact that they are now following the law.
Only one explanation here: Bush had to take drastic action so Cheney didn't torture like a million dudes when Bush goes under the knife tomorrow.
