Not the torture, but the failure to inform of the torture:

This is probably reading the news too closely, but we were struck by the following passages in the Washington Post story, Bush Privately Chides Rumsfeld
Bush is "not satisfied" and "not happy" with the way Rumsfeld informed him about the investigation into abuses by U.S. soldiers at Baghdad's Abu Ghraib prison or the quantity of information Rumsfeld provided, the senior White House official said.

The president was particularly disturbed at having had to learn from news reports this week about the scope of misconduct documented in an Army investigative report completed in March, according to the official, who refused to be named so he could speak more candidly.
NOTE: Mark A R Kleiman has a post along similar lines.
