Sociopaths so vile that even Mel Brooks can't humanize and make funny . . .
Dick Cheney gave an unflinching defense of he CIA's post-9/11 torture program on "Meet the Press" on Sunday, dismissing criticisms of the program's forced rectal feedings, waterboarding and a death.
"It worked. It absolutely did work," said Cheney, a driving force behind the George W. Bush administration's use of harsh tactics in response to the 9/11 attacks.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/12/14/dick-cheney-torture_n_6322872.html
The Gadfly does not ever, ever, ever, FUCKING EVER!! - want to hear these cocksuckers crying about the brutal treatment of American military personnel who will be captured (because it is going to happen) and are being held by our enemies.
Bush, Cheney, Rice, et. al. have ensured for the foreseeable future that America is no longer to be respected, or granted deference on the issue of POW and detainee treatment. Think about it you US Marines and Navy Seals and Seabees. Your government no longer has the moral high ground to protest your torturous treatment by it's enemies should you be unfortunate enough to be captured in a theater of war.
Cheney and his cabal of little Torquemadas basically told the world -- torture is ok if you really, really, really believe that you need it to protect yourselves, and more so if you really, really, really believe that you and your people are just awesome!
Whatever happened to the concept of America being the pioneering force of good, decency, fairness and lawfulness in the world?? The Gadfly knows the answer to that question --- do the rest of you? . . .
