President Bush was “asked about the validity of recent news reports that the CIA was using the practice of rendition to send terror suspects to overseas countries to be tortured as part of the war on terrorism. Also making headlines lately is the possibility that the CIA operated secret prisons in various countries overseas. ‘I haven’t seen that report, but if they’re saying we tortured people, they’re wrong,’ Bush responded, adding that he strongly supports the amendment by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., which prohibits the use of torture by the U.S. government. ‘No American will be allowed to torture anyone.’ ”
