The Dick Lied? Say It Ain't So!
We are shocked, shocked!, that former (Vice) President "The Dick" Cheney has been accused of lying about CIA memos that purport to show that torture techniques worked against al Qaeda prisoners. The Dick engaged in deceit? Perish the thought!
Senate Armed Services Committee chairman Sen. Carl Levin said that an investigation by his committee into the claims of The Dick "gives the lie to Mr. Cheney's claims." The two CIA documents that The Dick claims prove that torture worked say nothing of lives saved, nor the value of torture techniques in obtaining actionable intelligence. Nada.
So let's declassify the documents, and let's have that "Truth Commission" that we've heard about. And let The Dick testify under oath.
