Cheney Offers Sharp Defense of C.I.A. Interrogation Tactics
Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday sharply criticized the Obama administration‚Äôs decision to investigate the abuse of prisoners held by the Central Intelligence Agency as he delivered a forceful defense of the full range of interrogation techniques used by intelligence officers.
Broadcast just six days after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. appointed a federal prosecutor to examine the abuse of detainees, Mr. Cheney described the use of waterboarding and other coercive methods ‚ÄĒ including threatening detainees with a gun and a drill ‚ÄĒ as legal and crucial elements of the counterterrorism war.
‚ÄúI knew about the waterboarding, not specifically in any one particular case, but as a general policy that we had approved,‚ÄĚ said Mr. Cheney, who noted that neither a gun nor a drill had actually been used on detainees. ‚ÄúThe fact of the matter is the Justice Department reviewed all those...

Good question! That is an example of why supporting a certain party is often grey, not black and white as some would have us think. It is usually a question of supporting a party which is the least of evils and even that can be a difficult decision. But then you will probably even find some christians who will support that kind of torture. Nothing suprises me anymore.
I am not a huge fan of Chaney but he is right on in defending the Central Intellegence Agency interrogation tactics. Obama and wackos in the White House are insane, psychotic, in leageue with Satan and are in essence giving aid and comfort to the enemy who is the Satanic religion of Islam and the Satanic followers of Islam.
"‚ÄúThe fact of the matter is the Justice Department reviewed all those allegations several years ago.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúThe judgment was made then that there wasn‚Äôt anything that was improper or illegal,‚ÄĚ"
You know I feel that Dicky is no fan of Obama! Wonder why???
I thought Dicky and America would have realised by now that the policy of all Liberals, is to remove ALL authority from Justice, Government, Church Society, Marriage, Moral standards and any other institution they can lay their sticky paws upon.
Therefore Liberals (aka Democratic party) will try to establish complete anarchy in society and its institutions.
Isn't this obvious from the national and other examples - eg Britain, UN, EU, Liberal churches??? Look at Britain today their Judiciary always let the murderer, terrorist and other criminals away with their crimes. Punishment is banished from British justice now!
WHY? Because of the disease of abomination called Liberalism.
