Bush denies CIA torture claims - 2007

Posted Sat Oct 6, 2007 10:21pm AEST

US President George W Bush has denied that his administration has tortured terrorists and suspects.

He has also defended the work of CIA interrogators.

Insisting that Washington has broken no laws, Mr Bush says questioning is conducted by highly trained professionals who have obtained viable intelligence.

"When we find somebody who may have information regarding a potential attack on America, you bet we're going to detain them, you bet we're going to question them," he said.

"Because the American people expect us to find out information by actionable intelligence so we can help them, help protect them, that's our job."
