Torture - Why Did Bush Use It? To seek Iraq-al Qaida link...

We've already heard how torture leads of inaccurate intelligence and gives great propaganda to al Qaida. So why use it? Not for national security, oh no, for politics, to try and link Iraq and al Qaida. That's why...

The Bush administration applied relentless pressure on interrogators to use harsh methods on detainees in part to find evidence of cooperation between al Qaida and the late Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's regime, according to a former senior U.S. intelligence official and a former Army psychiatrist.

Such information would've provided a foundation for one of former President George W. Bush's main arguments for invading Iraq in 2003. In fact, no evidence has ever been found of operational ties between Osama bin Laden's terrorist network and Saddam's regime.
