Cheney says torture was necessary

Now Dick Cheney, one might expect, would want nothing more than to just retire to obscurity. However, here we have him turning up on that veritable "pravda" cum "Völkische Beobachter" of television news, 'FOX', and announcing that he had asked the CIA to declassify reports documenting the intelligence gained from the "interrogations".(1) This is after the Obama administration revealed that during Bush's time in office "interrogations" were in fact torture and thattorture was officially sanction and while our "hype" man said that he, "will not pursue prosecutions of CIA employees"(2) this isn't really enough for Dickie. You see this arsehole actually wants to argue that torture was necessary and that a lot of valuable intelligence was gained from it and he wants the CIA to provide him with the documentation to support his absurd thesis. Well, isn't it a pity we didn't have someone torturing George, Dickie, Donald, Cony and Tony, to get the necessary information about the illegal wars that they were about to pursue, to unlarve the odious lies that they were telling, and to thus avoid the slaughter of millions and millions of innocents who died in their wars? Well, that didn't happen and our "fabulous five" are obviously going to escape justice. However, is it really necessary that we are to be exposed further to their disgusting drivel? It is time for them to be thankful that they are not sharing a tract on death row, count their blessings and slip out of public view.
