So, does the fish rot from the head, or not? 

Gonzales says No:

GONZALES: [Bush] has also made clear that America stands against and will not tolerate torture under any circumstances.
(via WaPo)

But the FBI has already said Yes (back):

We [the FBI] are aware that prior to a revision in policy last week [May 22,2004] an executive order signed by President Bush authorized the following interrogation techniques among others: sleep "management," use of MWDs (Military Working Dogs)[back], "stress positions: such as half squats, "environmental manipulation" such as the use of loud music, sensory deprivation through the use of hoods, etc. We assume the OGC instruction does not include the reporting of these authorized interrogation techniques, and that the use of these techniques does not constitute "abuse."

I wonder when our LRWM is going to clarify this descrepancy? Maybe some whistlenblower will release a copy of the Executive order?
