Now that I'm a citizen, this is good news

A reporter on the campaign trail asked John McCain about torturing terrorism detainees. here's his response:
"I’ve made it very clear, I’ve made it very clear in my statements and in my support of the Detainee Treatment Act, the Geneva Conventions, etc., that there may be some additional techniques to be used, but none of those would violate the Geneva Conventions, the Detainee Treatment Act…And we cannot ever, in my view, torture any American, that includes waterboarding."
My first thought, good thing I got my US citizenship. Because doesn't he seem to be saying that everyone else is fair game to be tortured?

Or did he simply misspeak.
