This guy just can't shut up.These people are willing to cast aside the law whenever it stands in the way of their goals.




Cheney was unrepentant about his support for the technique. He answered with an emphatic "yes" when asked if he had opposed the Bush administration’s decision to suspend the use of waterboarding – after it was employed against three "high-value detainees" sometimes in repetitive sequences. He added that waterboarding should still be "on the table" today.





However, on Sunday, Cheney acknowledged that the White House had told the Justice Department lawyers what legal opinions to render. In other words, the opinions amounted to ordered-up lawyering to permit the administration to do whatever it wanted.


pretty damning evidence right there. Just do whatever you want under the pretense of fighting the "war on terror" and bend the law to fit the agenda.

The war on terror...what a joke.

Terrorism is a tactic, you cannot win a war against a tactic...therefore its a infinate war.

Like declaring a war on prone position shooting.

And so, if you can pass anything because of a current war on a tactic (never to end), then what a beautiful way to usher in a eternal dictatorship rule in theory.

Next will be the war on hate, followed by the war on frowns.

Cheney is a anti-american schmuck

The United States of America does not torture.

Waterboarding is as much of a torture technique as blasting heavy-metal music, or sleep deprevation.

These are enhanced interrogation techniques, and have been proven to work. Unlike the Obama adminstrations technique of telling terrorists "You have the right to remain silent."

Most of the tactics you mentioned have been denounced by our own government as indeed "torture." The United States defines "torture" as equivalent to our Eighth Amendment protection from cruel and unusual punishment. This was found to be the case by courts as well as our own Attorney General under Bush.

I think you are confusing US citizens who are protected by the Constitution with terrorists who are not.

I put together a thread regarding the findings a while back. Deny all you want, the facts stare back. Waterboarding is torture as defined by the United States. Anything else is just spin.
