President Bush
From CNN

Empty Threat of the Day

Bush says that questioning of suspected terrorists “won’t go forward” unless Congress passes a law clarifying the treatment and interrogation of such detainees.
Believe that? If so, there’s a nice Nigerian billionaire we met on the Internet who’d love to discuss a business opportunity with you…
