There is something fishy here.
Bush Alters Rules for Interrogations

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush signed an executive order Friday prohibiting cruel and inhuman treatment, including humiliation or denigration of religious beliefs, in the detention and interrogation of terrorism suspects.
The White House declined to say whether the CIA currently has a detention and interrogation program, but said if it did, it must adhere to the guidelines outlined in the executive order.
Wish I knew where I could find the executive order, 'cause I'm betting there is some doubletalk in it that effectively does some CYA'ng for the administration.
This is not Mr Bush's style at all, unless there is another motive.
