Bush Knew

President Bush knew his cabinet was discussing and approving torture:

President Bush says he knew his top national security advisers discussed and approved specific details about how high-value al Qaeda suspects would be interrogated by the Central Intelligence Agency ... "Well, we started to connect the dots in order to protect the American people." Bush told ABC News White House correspondent Martha Raddatz. "And yes, I'm aware our national security team met on this issue. And I approved."
While I am wary of sentences that prominently feature the noun-verb combination "Bush knew," it would seem Bush knew about and approved the war crimes done under his authority. Indeed, I find it a little too convenient that these meetings seem to include every high-ranking figure in the executive branch except Bush himself. Deeper investigation is needed.

Those responsible need to be held accountable.
