Cheney is Up to His Knees in Torture

The Daily Beast reports:

Former NBC News investigative producer Robert Windrem reports that the vice president’s office suggested waterboarding an Iraqi prisoner who was suspected of knowing about a relationship between al Qaeda and Saddam.

Robert Windrem, who covered terrorism for NBC, reports exclusively in The Daily Beast that:

*Two U.S. intelligence officers confirm that Vice President Cheney’s office suggested waterboarding an Iraqi prisoner, a former intelligence official for Saddam Hussein, who was suspected to have knowledge of a Saddam-al Qaeda connection.

*The former chief of the Iraq Survey Group, Charles Duelfer, in charge of interrogations, tells The Daily Beast that he considered the request reprehensible.

*Much of the information in the report of the 9/11 Commission was provided through more than 30 sessions of torture of detainees.

This would certainly explain why Cheney, who spent much of the past 8 years hiding out in a “secure, undisclosed location, ” while he ran worked for the Bush administration, suddenly can’t shut up. The former vice president spends nearly all of his waking hours making appearances on the Sunday morning blab shows and on FIXED Noise, defending the Bush previous administration.

If Cheney is smart, he had best hire a crack team of lawyers to defend him because I predict he will be spending his summer and fall in-front of the a special council investing his role in torture and human rights abuses.

    He is all about coverig his own ass. Nothing he says or does is about him putting country first. He should be tried for treason for the rape and pillage of our country. This man is the root cause of all America’s issues.

    He and his daughter can go to hell.

  3. I hope you are right, but I think Cheney will spend the summer shooting animals and going on Fox News. Personally, I think he is seeking visibility now so that he can claim that any investigation into torture that targets him is politically motivated.

  4. the world would be a better place without any cheneys – as PINY said – he is so friggin devious, this whole torture tour is nothing more than a ploy to cover his sorry five deferment chickenshit ass.

    i hope he gets #6 soon

    I told people he was a piece of shit back when everybody was praising his coward ass during his run as Defense Secretary. I also told them he was an idiot, and Powell and Schwarzkopf were responsible for the relatively smooth operations in the theater.

    Well, whaddayaknow? Looks like I was right.

    Cheney is the essence of evil. He isn’t human and the day he dies is the day the humanity can breathe a collective sigh.

    Of course, evil is on a different clock than the rest of us. This fat fucker will probably outlive all of us, what with experimental medicine and stem cell.

    As much as I would like to see Cheney prosecuted for war crimes, I am doubtful Eric Holder and Barack Obama have the balls to do it.

    I hope that one of our foreign debt holders decides to force our government to turn Cheney over for trial for crimes against humanity. It would be so ironic and appropriate, since Cheney’s administration put us so much deeper in debt.
