& r & While rumors have abounded that the United States was contemplating using the interminable waiting times at the DMV to force terror suspects to talk, Mr. Bush's Rose Garden announcement was the first public acknowledgement of the plan.
& r & "Effective tomorrow, these detainees will be forced to wait on long lines and fill out form after form for hours on end," Mr. Bush told reporters. "If that does not make these evildoers talk, nothing will."
& r & Explaining the president's plan, White House spokesman Tony Snow said that each terror suspect would be forced to apply for new drivers' licenses, vehicle registrations and license plates "until they start singing like canaries."
But hours after the President's plan was announced, human rights groups around the world cried foul, claiming that detaining suspects at the DMV, especially the one in New York, was tantamount to torture.
& r & "It is in our opinion that being forced to spend more than one hour at the DMV could be in direct violation of the Geneva Conventions," said Carol Foyler of Amnesty International.
& r & At the White House, Mr. Snow said that the President had other options for making detainees talk, including making them take turns as the White House press secretary.
& r & "No one lasts in this job for long without snapping," Mr. Snow said.
