Dick Cheney has Finally Hit the Bottom of Despicability

On Monday, however, Cheney made sure to blanket the criminally prosecutable blame: "We all approved it," he said, as he continued his propaganda campaign for the declassification of non-existent proof of torture's non-existent effectiveness.

He also blamed the then-head of the counterterrorism program, Richard Clarke, for "obviously miss[ing]" 9/11's warning signs; and, in effect, he blamed CIA director George Tenet for the colossally imbecilic Iraq War: "The prime source of information on the relationship between Iraq and al-Qaeda was George Tenet.... That is not something I made up, that is not something I thought of. That is what the director of central intelligence was telling us."

Mr Cheney is playing a dangerous game here. He's lying his rear end off whilst shifting all blame to everyone else around him. Already we have seen CIA and military people speak out against his claims. It is very likely that we'll get a reaction from others who have had enough of this bluster.

I would very much like to see some anonymous material turn up online revealing an ugly truth that will place Mr Cheney in deep trouble.
