Cheney says He will decide whether he cooperates with probe
The arrogance of the Bush-Cheney White House continues unabated – at least the Cheney half – even though they were kicked out the door months ago.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney said he might refuse to speak with a prosecutor investigating suspected CIA prisoner abuses, a probe he branded as political and bad for national security…
Asked whether he would talk to prosecutor John Durham if eventually sought out, Cheney told “Fox News Sunday”: “It will depend on the circumstances and what I think their activities are really involved in…”
Cheney said he did not know at the time which methods were used in specific cases but defended the interrogators, saying “the enhanced interrogation techniques were absolutely essential in saving thousands of American lives…”
On Sunday, Republican lawmakers renewed their concerns about the investigation while one of Obama’s key allies sought to distance the president from Holder’s decision…
Prominent Republicans including Senator John McCain, a former presidential candidate and torture survivor during the Vietnam War, said they were concerned about the investigation’s impact on morale at the CIA.
A Washington Post report on Sunday cited former intelligence officials saying CIA morale was sagging.
I’ve said it before. I’ll say it, again. If Christians hadn’t beaten them to it – the Republican Party would have invented hypocrisy for them.
All these creeps who maunder about Law and Order at election time are confident that the Law part doesn’t apply to them. They needn’t obey or answer questions or even consider cooperating with lawful investigations because they are above the law.
