Can't say I'm surprised. My capacity for outrage with these guys dried up 3 years ago.

He and Rummy are going to go the way of Kissinger, having to consult with their lawyers any time they want to leave the country.

Wish all you want, these guys are all heros. You don't like them, too bad..! They saved your butts for eight years...
Chaney is THE MAN..! I'm glad he knows how to get information out of really bad guys.
If you like the killers, let them live in your house...

Who the hell is this super hero "Chaney" that you keep talking about over and over? NOBODY but me has saved my butt since I have been old enough to be on my own and especially no chickenhawk cowards in the Bush administration.Quit being scared of your own shadow and cowboy up a little bit.

Exactly.

Cheney's public statement that he approved these methods means he may be tried as a criminal someday. Perhaps a stretch, but it is being discussed. IIRC, the methods he approved violate the Geneva Convention, to which WE are a signatory.

Understand about saving your own butt. I left my parents home with nothing, no credentials, no old school ties, took every crummy job that came along to get promoted, saved and invested. Retired now, sitting pretty, no one's fool.
