McClatchy the Only Newspaper that has the Guts to dissect Cheney's Fearmongering piece of Drivel Speech....
In the opening paragraphs Strobel and Landlay really tear into the speech- sentence by sentence exposing it for what it is .... a speech of full of lies and holes by a failed dictator...Do click the title and read the whole thoughtful assessment, and if you want do read the full text of Cheney's speech below at the bottem.
"Former Vice President Dick Cheney's defense Thursday of the Bush administration's policies for interrogating suspected terrorists contained omissions, exaggerations and misstatements.
In his address to the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative policy organization in Washington, Cheney said that the techniques the Bush administration approved, including waterboarding — simulated drowning that's considered a form of torture — forced nakedness and sleep deprivation, were "legal" and produced information that "prevented the violent death of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of innocent people."
(1) My first question is this....if Cheney was so damn paranoid that he only felt safe to ORDER Torture from his secret Cave or lair ? His Bunker ? BUT now he is out daily preaching about the Wonders of Torture- can we ask for a Competency Hearing for him ?
(2) So Condi has not come out and backed him ? but did try unsuccessfully to defend torture to 3rd graders at a school....Has Anyone come out and joined his Torture Defense ? Anyone ? ( and I notice that Meyers and Rummy are silent as well ? and yes even the Dubya....or hell even Gonzo ?)
(3) Isn't Cheney facing charges down in Texas because his Prisons that he runs are doing "things" illegally ?
(4) Wasn't Wittington the Lawyer he shot in the Face- wasn't he on the Prison Review Board in Texas ?
(5) WHY has no one like Frontline or 60 minutes ever investigated whether Cheney is a psychotic criminal ? seriously ?
( Here is the full text of Dick's delusional insane bizarre speech....)
