"I should really walk to the shops but I have health reasons that make me a special case" though sometimes that is a lie or cop out.
But the implications of calling your country a special case with special circumstances in order to torture individuals, probably again without trial, surely wants people to scream 'not in my name'.
According to the Globe and Mail Jeb Bush said Thursday that "in general, he believes torture is inappropriate, and that he was glad his brother, former President George W. Bush, largely ended the CIA’s use of the techniques before he left office" but he "declined to rule out resuming the use of torture under some circumstances."
At time of writing an executive order by President Barack Obama’s is in place which bans so-called enhanced interrogation techniques by the C.I.A. Speaking Thursday to an audience of Iowa Republicans Bush said “I don’t want to make a definitive, blanket kind of statement” when asked if he would keep that order in place or repeal it.
Once again fancy words like "enhanced interrogation techniques" do not illustrate the true horror of abuse.
Will Jeb Bush become U.S. President in 2016?
Bush has a long road ahead and must first secure the Republican Party nomination.
