I did not have torturous relations with that prisoner

So President Bush says that torture as defined by the Geneva Convention is a vague concept that is open to a variety of interpretations. Hm. I seem to recall another President using an argument of that form. As I recall, it was about the term "sexual relations." Or was it the word "is?"

Perhaps the difference being... that Pres. Clinton knew full well that those two terms did not have any ambiguity whatsoever. Torture, on the other hhand, does seem very hard to totally define.
