Cheney: No Wrongdoing, No Need for Preemptive Pardons
Vice President Dick Cheney has told the Associated Press there is no need for President Bush to issue preventive pardons for abusive interrogation techniques. Why?
He also said he doesn't think anyone at the CIA did anything illegal during interrogations. He says they followed the administration's legal opinions.
What about waterboarding? Cheney believes the information gleaned from suspects after the simulated drowning is reliable. And,
The vice president said waterboarding has been used with "great discrimination by people who know what they're doing" and produced much valuable information.
He's learned nothing since 2006 when he publicly first endorsed waterboarding. Is he living in an alternative universe or what? 12 days and counting.
