I guess the Powell letter must have stung? I'm stunned. I thought the calluses or the crania were all too thick by now for anything other than a major election defeat to penetrate. Election results being pretty clearly the main motivator besides greed for the folks in charge of late.
As for the title epithet - as Bush is Commander-in-Chief, he is responsible for the actions of those under him. That makes him Torturer-in-Chief as long as anyone under his command is using secret detentions, torture techniques or handing prisoners over to people who will torture for them.
