Confirming what everyone knew all along but the government were too lily-livered to admit:
Cheney, Others OK’d Harsh Interrogations
By LARA JAKES JORDAN and PAMELA HESS
Associated Press WriterWASHINGTON (AP) — Bush administration officials from Vice President Dick Cheney on down signed off on using harsh interrogation techniques against suspected terrorists after asking the Justice Department to endorse their legality, The Associated Press has learned.
Cheney et al knew it was right for the USA to use torture but they also knew it was right that no one should know it was them who ok’d it. Double standard? Sure. But who cares about that. What we care about is that torture-porn like 24 aside, it’s inefficient, morally questionable, and has probably helped throw the USA into recession because the whole world looks at the USA differently now. And not different-is-good.
Hope Cheney (et al) gets prison time before his robo-heart gives out.
