The article looks at the criticisms facing United States President George W. Bush over the methods used in the war on terrorism. Bush was criticized for threatening to veto an effort by Senator John McCain to prohibit the cruel or inhumane treatment of detainees. Now Bush agreed to a ban on such actions. However, Bush is now being criticized because he authorized the National Security Agency to broaden its electronic eavesdropping to include international telephone calls and e-mail.
