Alberto Gonzales, 12/8/05:

[W]ith respect to torture, the question is easy: We do not torture. The U.S. policy — not only is it policy, it is the law. We have a domestic law, domestic legal prohibition. We have an international prohibition against torture. … For this president, his position has been consistent all the way through with respect to torture. United States policy and our legal obligations are no torture.

Gonzales, today:

We do not render individuals where we believe it’s more likely than not that they will be tortured.
