VIDEO/TORTURE: Condi Rice's tortured reasoning on waterboarding ...

Condoleezza Rice's attempts to clarify her expressed views on the legality of torture are about as clear as mud, as the following video from AlJazeera English illustrates.

The text accompanying this video is below.

Condoleezza Rice, the former US secretary of state, has dismissed claims she approved the use of torture when she was US National Security adviser.

The former secretary of state caused a storm when she said if harsh interrogation methods were authorised by the US President, then they were not illegal.

Al Jazeera's Monica Villamizar asked her about the controversy her statements have caused.
