BBC, in a piece detailing an interview with former Vice President Dick Cheny on Fox News, quotes the former statesman as saying that Bush was "Fully-Informed" on the techniques:
Former US President George W Bush was "fully informed" about CIA interrogation techniques condemned in a Senate report, his vice-president says.
Speaking to Fox News, Dick Cheney said Mr Bush "knew everything he needed to know" about the programme, and the report was "full of crap".
President Bush "knew everything he needed to know, and wanted to know" about CIA interrogation, he said. "He knew the techniques... there was no effort on my part to keep it from him.
"He was fully informed."
There's an incongruity in these satements though. "Fully-informed" and "knew everything he needed to know" suggest two very different levels of information on what was going on.
How much would Bush, as President of the United States, known about the treatment of prisoners? How much, legally, would he have been required to know?
Specifically, was George W Bush aware of the "enhanced interrogation" techniques being used by the CIA - including waterboarding, sleep deprivation, and environmental manipulation?
