Bush said other countries should torture our people that they capture

I don’t feel like dredging up a transcript, but I heard the replay a few hours ago on the Randi Rhodes program. Bush first told (NBC’s) David Gregory that if other countries did whatever they like with our soldiers it would be a better world. Gregory gave Bush, who was by degrees losing his temper, every chance to ‘correct’ himself, which Bush actually did. In the ‘corrected’ version, Bush said other countries should torture our people the same way we torture people. He used his Naziesque language, of course.
