PANAMA CITY, Panama - President Bush vigorously defended U.S. interrogation practices in the war on terror Monday and lobbied against a congressional drive to outlaw torture.
"There's an enemy that lurks and plots and plans and wants to hurt America again," Bush said. "So you bet we will aggressively pursue them but we will do so under the law."
He declared, "We do not torture."
Over White House opposition, the Senate has passed legislation banning torture. With Vice President Dick Cheney as the point man, the administration is seeking an exemption for the CIA. It was recently reported that the spy agency maintains a network of prisons in eastern Europe and Asia, where it holds terrorist suspects.
The European Union is investigating the reports, which have not been confirmed by the White House. The story was first reported by The Washington Post.
"Our country is at war and our government has the obligation to protect the American people," Bush said. "Any activity we conduct is within the law. We do not torture.

Yeah "We do not torture." "Hey if you're going to pass that bill making torture illegal could you please exempt the CIA from it?" "But we don't torture."

Yeah, there's not a mixed message there.

I like the way that Jon Stewart put it on the Daily Show tonight...

What do you believe?
A) Your eyes.
B) Your ears.
C) Your president.
