Why Cheney Approved Of Torture
So that he could keep saying this:
We decided to confront the regimes that sponsored terrorists . . . We turned special attention to regimes that had the capacity to build weapons of mass destruction, and might transfer such weapons to terrorists. . . .
We had the training camps of Afghanistan, and dictators like Saddam Hussein with known ties to Mideast terrorists.
(Emphasis supplied.) Cheney approved of torture not because it helped to combat terrorism - it not only does not work, it foments terrorism - he approves of it because it allowed him to foment the Iraq Debacle. Funny how the Iraq Debacle was not mentioned in his speech today.
Speaking for me only
