Bush Whitehouse: Threatening to have someone's mother raped isn't torture.

On Aug. 2, an interrogation chief visited the prisoner posing as a White House representative named "Navy Capt. Collins," the report said. He gave the prisoner a forged memorandum indicating that Mr. Slahi's mother was being shipped to Guantanamo, and that officials had concerns about her safety as the only woman amid hundreds of male prisoners, according a person familiar with the matter.
The military lawyer assigned refused to prosecute the alleged al-Qaeda member, based on a confession elicited by such methods. Revulsion against this toxic administration from people like this on the front lines may be the only thing that will save America's soul.
