Operated in the dark and shadows doing illegal crap
(Hence the nickname “Dark Dick”)
Of course, on FOX spewing his garbage that torture works
(A nasty mean evil totally despicable man)
Astonishing appearance from Richard Bruce Cheney, former Vice President of the United States and of course, as always on FOX from Media Matters, here in part with a 4-minute video posted by FOX on Youtube below as a way of introduction:
Historical Background: The torture program set up by the George W. Bush administration in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks was a brutal, illegal, and slipshod travesty for which there has been no reckoning.
All of the people who designed, implemented, and justified the brutal and useless interrogations of terrorism detainees have successfully ducked accountability for a variety of reasons: (1) Republicans actively support torture; (2) the Democrats voluntarily abandoned their opportunity to impose accountability for the program, and both parties are apt to excuse flagrant abuses committed in the name of national security.
Cheney sat down with FOX Business host Maria Bartiromo (Irony: FOX– the GOP’s respite for spewing garbage and Bartiromo – the FOX “Intelligence” expert, um).
Cheney oozed out a series of falsehoods about his torture program – lies that elicited precisely zero challenges from Bartiromo as seen in the video above.
Note: The whole story continues at the Media Matters story linked above and is chocked full of Cheney’s many and misleading claims and outright BS defense of his shameful legacy and this awful black mark on America’s values and honor.
Thanks for stopping by.
