Cheney: We Do Torture
Actually, Cheney says "we don't do torture." However, a few questions later he contradicts himself:
KARL: And on KSM (Khalid Sheikh Mohammed), one of those tactics, of course, widely reported was waterboarding. And that seems to be a tactic we no longer use. Even that you think was appropriate?
CHENEY: I do.
In case you are wondering waterboarding has been considered torture for thousands of years. It violates US law. It is a crime. Not just a war crime, but also a violation of US criminal law. Cheney has admitted to committing this crime. In our names. And our Congress knew and did nothing. This stain will not wash out.
Speaking for me only
