After 4/1 everything changed: It’s time to arrest Dick Cheney on war crimes
Cheney continues his defense of the indefeasible in this article:
“I think that it’s clear that those techniques that the CIA used worked. And to have taken them away and ruled them out I think may be a mistake,” he told CBS television’s “Face the Nation.”
Asked whether the methods should be reinstated if the United States were to capture a new high-value target, Cheney replied: “I certainly would advocate it. I’d be a strong supporter of it.”
To sum up: we used torture and we should use it some more.
Why isn’t this guy in jail?
And for those that would tread on this tired old defense:
“Waterboarding and all of the other techniques that were used are techniques that we use training our own people,” he said. “This is stuff that we’ve done for years with own military personnel and to suggest that it’s torture I just think is wrong.”
You don’t call training “torture” because it just isn’t.
Let’s be clear: Sex with a willing adult is called “sex”. Sex with an unwilling adult is called “Rape”.
If you continually harm someone or a third party in hopes of forcing a person in your custody do something you are, be definition, torturing them.
