My my. To the casual observer, it appears that Dick Cheney is actually a trifle, well, nervous. It’s not just his legacy as the worst, sickest, and least patriotic VP in history, but his own pale ass. He may be labeled not only a totalitarian asshole, but a criminal as well, if the Attorney General appoints a special prosecutor, and that independent counsel starts digging away…..
Dick Cheney has returned to the fray to demand the CIA release documents that he says show “enhanced” interrogation techniques extracted crucial information from terror suspects.
The former vice president’s remarks follow Barack Obama’s decision to release top secret memos detailing controversial questioning methods used under the Bush administration.
“One of the things that I find a little bit disturbing about this recent disclosure is that they put out the legal memos… but they didn’t put out the memos that show the success of the effort,” Mr. Cheney told Fox News. — The Independent
The point being, if torturing human beings works, it’s not just okay, it’s morally imperative. Only slippered academic liberals in their safe comfy chairs can’t grasp this basic truth the way Dick Cheney does. But unfortunately for him, that’s sort of who’s in charge now.
Heh heh heh.
Unlike the ‘Pubs, this crew of ‘Crats isn’t content to let the little guys take the load. The Lindsey Englunds, low-level foot soldiers who faithfully listened to their leaders and dutifully followed orders, only to get labeled among the “few bad apples” and end up blamed and disgraced. Lie, Deny, Duck, Dodge, and Scapegoat. Sounds like corporate Washington spin-doctors, yes?
No, Cheney is out of his snake pit to protest the injustice of it all. Absolving the CIA grunts who did the dirty deeds, Obama then opened the door to hold the real power responsible and perhaps actionable: Bush’s slimebucket lawyers and high-level advisors who created the cover for American atrocities in the form of legal memos and findings. Puke like John “Screw” Yoo. David “Broken” Axelrod. Little Alphonso Gonzales. And maybe even Lon Cheney himself.
“But it worked!” protests Vice. “Like Lenin and Saul Alinsky said: The end justifies the means!”
The fact of the matter is, the only acceptable, legitimate deployment of torture ever is during sex. Which has to be the polar opposite of government. Government has no place in the bedroom, back seat, or leather bar dungeon, let alone secret offshore prisons.
Damn! And Cheney’s daughter is a lesbian, too. You’d think maybe he’d have learned something over the years.
