Regarding the torture of al Qaeda terrorist suspects: “White House Counsel Alberto R. Gonzales said in a May 21 [2004] interview with The Washington Post: ‘Anytime a discussion came up about interrogations with the president [Bush]…the directive was, *Make sure it is lawful. Make sure it meets all of our obligations under the Constitution, U.S. federal statutes and applicable treaties.* ‘ “
