“House Democrats on Tuesday failed to overturn President Bush’s veto of a bill that would have prohibited the CIA from using waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques on terrorist suspects.

The vetoed legislation would have limited the CIA to using only the 19 interrogation methods approved in the Army field manual.” (AP)
