Taking people apart

Answering a question on May 31 about criticism made by Amnesty International regarding the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, George W Bush said:
In terms of, umm – you know, the – the detainees, we've had thousands of people detained. We've investigated every single complaint against the detainees. It seemed like to me they based some of their decisions on, on the word of, uhh – and the allegations – by people who were held in detention, people who hate America, people that had been trained in some instances to disassemble – that means not tell the truth. And so it was an absurd report. It just is. And, uhh, you know – yes, sir.

The word Dubya is looking for here (and not finding) is dissemble. That doesn't stop him from acting like he's giving the media pool a vocabulary lesson, though.
