CNN has this headline today: Cheney slams Obama
Cheney made his remarks during a speech at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank.
He said the use of controversial “enhanced interrogation techniques” was a success that saved thousands of lives. “
First, the old geezer isn’t running for re-election. So, it isn’t clear why he’s still pressing the scare tactics. He must actually believe in what he’s saying. But that doesn’t mean he’s right.
At the same time, Cheney argued that Obama’s decision to release Bush-era interrogation memos was a reckless and unfair distraction in the fight against terrorists.
He noted that Obama’s CIA director, Leon Panetta, opposed the release of the documents. “
Second, where’s the evidence that Bushco saved “thousands of lives” with these techniques? Oh, but wait. He doesn’t want to cough up the evidence.
He just wants to pop off some unsupported bullshit.
Imagine that. Business as usual.
