KR Washington Bureau | 10/05/2005 | Senate adds amendment banning torture to defense spending bill: “Last week the White House sent the Senate a ‘statement of administration policy’ that declared strong opposition to the anti-torture language on the grounds that it would tie the president’s hands in the war on terrorism. The statement said that if the anti-torture terms remained in the bill’s final version, ‘the president’s senior advisers would recommend that he veto the bill.’ “
