Cheney touts torture

You have to give these White House rogues credit for sheer shamelessness. They apparently intend to bulldoze their insanely inept policies through the legislature, right up until the time the jail house door clangs shut on their criminally liable butts.

Today's latest outrage comes via Dick Cheney who personally browbeat John McCain over the provision currently attached to the pending defense appropriations bill, that would forbid any further torture of any prisoners in our custody. Cheney, apparently feeling that he has nothing to lose with the Plamegate scandal about to bust his little dreamworld open, is pushing an end run proposal to thwart the will of the Senate on the anti-torture provision and outright exempt the CIA from its proscribes.

You have to ask, why does the White House want Arabs to hate us? You don't suppose it has anything to do with Cheney making billions under the table in deferred profits from the Halliburton war contracts, do you?

If the bill exemption for the CIA goes through, will it still be possible for the American people to avoid culpability by pretending that they didn't know?
