White House propaganda

The letter I received from Nancy Theis, Special Assistant to the President and Director of Presidential Correspondence, dated May 29, 2008, on official White House stationery states, "As the President has said, the United States does not engage in or condone torture [my italics]...[he] also strongly supports the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005, which prohibits cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment by United States personnel anywhere in the world."

1. Will Theis one day write a Scott McClellan like memoir, bemoaning her naivete?
2. Did her college history courses skip Joseph Goebbels?
3. Does anyone care that we, the taxpayers, are funding such propaganda?
4. If the torture is "outsourced" to another country, does it not count?
