YouTube Theater: Pressing Bush on Waterboarding and Torture


Matt Lauer sticks to his guns and presses Bush repeatedly on the use of waterboarding and other torture.

Note how Bush guards his plausible deniability about the techniques being used, placing any culpability for illegal torture techniques on the Justice Department lawyers who he asked to obtain information but "do it within the law."

PS: What's up with the standing interview? And the two of them standing nose to nose?
