Cheney: No Regrets About Guantanamo
"Guantanamo's been operated, I think, in a very sane and sound fashion by the U.S. military. ... I think these people have been well-treated, treated humanely and decently," Cheney said. "Occasionally there are allegations of mistreatment.
"But if you trace those back, in nearly every case, it turns out to come from somebody who has been inside and been released ... to their home country and now are peddling lies about how they were treated. end quote.
A person, subject to torture and threats of death, will never disclose his condition while confined. He waits until he is around true friends. His waiting does not affect the veracity of his or her disclosures.
Dick Cheney is around friends all the time. He never has to confront any policy dissenters, any of his "Islamofascists," or anyone of the people who believe he's got one big empty hole where his heart once was. No, he's always among friends, that one. I wonder what he'll think after he's been apprehended and the voluminous evidence of American human rights abuses is finally resting its full weight on that hollow skull and chest. The sheer weight of the truth of his iniquity will crush not just his life, but his spirit. No heaven waits for this anti-human being. Whatever treasure he has garnered will be the wrecking ball of his personal tower of Babel.
