Surfin’ USA

Wow…those Washington folks sure know how to make a mess into a bigger mess

Fuck knows what Cheney’s up to but he’s making Obama’s attempts to shrug off the CIA’s use of torture certain interrogation techniques not just less effective than they already are, but helping to make the US’s world image even poorer than it already is.

“One of the things that I find a little bit disturbing about this recent disclosure is that they put out the legal memos… but they didn’t put out the memos that show the success of the effort,” Mr Cheney told Fox News.

I’m not surprised that there were successes – waterboarding someone 266 times isn’t exactly a desultory attempt to get them to talk.

Now Cheney wants the US people to judge for themselves whether such methods were justified in terms of the value of the information obtained by using them.

The American people should have a chance to weigh the intelligence obtained alongside the legal debate, he said.

I’m sure that the US people will adopt their usual gung ho attitude and see the ends as justifying the means.

But isn’t that the terrorists’ philosophy also?

  1. It’s like saying “So we killed about a 200,000 innocent people, but at least we got two terrorists in that!!! So it’s not all bad!”
