Mr. Bush seems to deny authorizing torture:

SEA ISLAND, Georgia (CNN) -- President Bush said Thursday he never authorized the use of any interrogation techniques in the war on terrorism that would violate U.S. or international laws.
"The authorization I issued was that anything we did would conform to U.S. law and would be consistent with international treaty obligations," Bush told reporters at the G8 Summit.

Of course, the administration torture memoranda that are now surfacing pretty much say those laws and obligations don't bind the president.
