The BBC says:

US President George Bush has reiterated his position that the US administration does not condone torture, following comments by Vice-President Dick Cheney.

In an interview, Mr Cheney agreed that "a dunk in the water" for terrorism suspects during questioning in order to save American lives was a "no-brainer".

More cynical electioneering from the Republican scum that now run America. Cheney wants to signal the Republican base that he is all for torture (since apparently the Republican base loves torture) but in a backhand way so he can claim that it was all just a misunderstanding. His other comment given at the same time, that he is known as the Vice President of Torture, is much more to the point. The Bush-Cheney administration is still in the running to be deemed the worst of all time.
