"Jordan’s King Abdullah says U.S. tortured."

Yesterday, NBC Meet the Press host David Gregory interviewed Jordan’s King Abduallah and asked him whether he believed the U.S. tortured detainees. “Well, from what we’ve seen and what we’ve heard, there are enough accounts to show that this is the case,” Abdullah said. Gregory pressed:

KING ABDULLAH: What I see on the press … shows that there were illegal ways of dealing with detainees.
