The singularly most evil man to be found ANYWHERE on Planet Earth and that would be Dick ‘wad’ Cheney, was effusing pontifically on the Sunday “news talk shows” and damn, why in hell would the brainiacs of ABCBSNBCNNMSNBC news programming give Cheney air time?
Short answer would be, mainline AmeriKKKan journalism is comfortably in bed with war criminals and acceptably comfortable with crimes against humanity.
Yeah, Empire AmeriKKKa is flushed down a fascist rat hole so deep there is no ‘right of return’.
Cheney has no apologies for torture worked by the CIA.
Cheney said the CIA “very carefully avoided” torturing detainees during interrogations. How the fuck would Cheney “know” that? Cheney dug his hole deeper and then deeper.
“All of the torture that was authorized by the president (George W. Bush) was, in effect, blessed by the Justice Department opinion that we could go forward with torture without, in fact, committing torture.”
It is perfectly acceptable right about now to scratch one’s head and utter, under one’s breath of course, what the fuck?
And then and then…
On CNN’s ‘Fareed Zakaria GPS’, John Yoo, a former Deputy Assistant Attorney General lawyer who helped write the memos from which the CIA drew legal justification for it’s torture program said, “the CIA may have gone too far.”
Oh yeah,” too far”? Yoo just blinked and is at this very minute seeking immunity from prosecution for war crimes and crimes against humanity in exchange for his “testimony” in any upcoming war crimes tribunal that might happen to coalesce .
Hang on everybody cause this just gets better by the goddamn minute.
Chuck Todd (NBC media whore) pressed Cheney on the CIA’s use of the practice known as “rectal hydration,” asking the former vice president whether he considered that torture.
Let’s be clear on the notion, “rectal hydration” is where the torturer jams a garden hose up the ass of whomever is being tortured and cranks on the water and the result is enema hydraulics.
Cheney acknowledged the practice was employed. That little nugget is admissible in a war crimes tribunal. Cheney qualified his admission of course with a weak ass “I believe that was done for medical reasons.” Yeah, one might understand why Cheney would want to “qualify” that stupid admission.
Cheney’s claim was rejected earlier this week by Intelligence Committee chairwoman Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California citing a statement from Physicians for Human Rights. There is “no clinical indication to use rectal rehydration and feeding over oral or intravenous administration of fluids and nutrients.”

Okay and we’re just about at the big finish.
Cheney insists he was not particularly concerned about the prospect that some of the suspects being detained and tortured might be innocent.
“I have no problem with torture and crimes against humanity as long as we achieve our objective,” Cheney said, “and our objective was to get the guys who did 9/11 and to avoid another attack against the United States.”
You know on account of “al-CIAda” pulled off 9/11/01.
Cheney also disputes a claim in the Senate report that the CIA misled former President George W. Bush about the agency’s torturing people.
“Bush knew we were torturing,” Cheney said. “Bush authorized it. Bush approved it.”
There you go.
War crimes, crimes against humanity, high crimes and misdemeanors, treason, treachery, and the miserable son of a bitch (Cheney) actually figures he done good.
The entire Bushco regime needs be slapped in chains with appropriate binders for restraint, and sent forthwith to the International Criminal Court at the Hague and a proper war crimes tribunal convened. Of course el Jefé the Obama would fight that prospect tooth and nail. Sauce for a rectally hydrated goose would be sauce for a feckless Obama gander.
