    Cheney: Obama Should Be Debriefing, Not Investigating

    1. Every time Holder/Obama bring up the CIA, which is about once a month, periodically, Dick the Darth comes back out of his cave to kick a little more Rushmore butt

    2. This weekend he's going on FNS (Gibbs should never have declared war on the cable giant) to denigrate the deleterious POLITICAL motives of this crass administration in seeking to PROSECUTE those the rest of the nation, far less partisan than this petty minded president, are more inclined to THANK

    3. In other words, CHENEY WANTS THIS, he's been trying to get these documents before the public since he left office

    4. BRING IT ON!

    5. Because, bottom line, when it comes to NATIONAL SECURITY, whatever the last White House did WORKED

    6. Not a single large scale act of terror, not even a little bombing of a Straw Hat pizza parlor

    7. And there's no DEBATE about that

    8. Which, considering the WILL of our wild-eyed enemies, as well as the relative ease with which those who would KILL can cravenly attack, any time, anywhere, compared to the far more demanding job of PROTECTING every American every day, is really rather miraculously impressive

    9. According to the VERY DOCUMENTS Holder intends to use to make his ridiculous charges, the techniques employed by the Bush administration were across the board effective

    10. The controversy, reserved only to the purely partisan, is that our methods were too extreme

    11. And the instances this tiny, tinny team of tattlers point to as the WORST examples of abuse are---THREATS never acted upon, POWER TOOLS never employed, the BLOWING of second hand cigarette smoke...

    12. LOLOL!

    13. I mean, POLITICALLY---LOL!

    14. Carville's consummately correct---totally "terrible politics"

    15. ALL these charges have ALREADY been investigated by Virginia prosectuors, most of them more than once

    16. NONE active were found to warrant action

    17. AMERICA herself has been down this dusty old road ad tedium

    18. More and more, this silly sally by Holder/Obama can be seen as a sop to the sullen LEFT which is still all pissy about the loss of its precious public option

    19. The president tries to forestall revolt with this half-step measure, leaning only on Langley's lowest

    20. Which, that's not gonna work either

    21. When health care is canned in Pelosi's Place in the Autumn, except all hell to come howling

    22. Now that the White House has acted, it wont want to discuss this question anymore

    23. Cheney and HIS friends, in contrast, are gonna be talking non stop about THIS special prosecutor, people like The profoundly experienced Prof will put up POINTS

    24. Because this issue for Obama is a LOSER

    25. Cheney claims Enhanced Interrogation prevented attacks

    26. It's also known that the waterboarding of Abu Zubaydah led to the arrest of Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, mastermind of 9-11

    27. Normal Americans outside this really weird White House have no sympathy for Al Qaeda leadership

    28. The most INCOMPETENT politician at the national level America has ever seen gets his skinny ass spanked over his signature health care, so changes the subject to another LOSER just as large

    Cheney: Obama Team Should Be Debriefing CIA Interrogators, Not Investigating Them - Political News - FOXNews.com

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Friday said the Obama administration should be debriefing CIA interrogators about keeping the country safe rather than trying to punish them for doing their jobs.

    In an exclusive interview taped to air this weekend on "FOX News Sunday," Cheney called the Justice Department probe of interrogators an "outrageous political act" that will do long-term damage to the United States' capacity to protect the country.

    "We had a track record now of eight years of defending the nation against any further mass casualty attacks from al Qaeda. The approach of the Obama administration should be to come to those people who were involved in that policy and say, 'How did you do it? What were the keys to keeping this country safe over that period of time?'" Cheney said.

    "Instead, they're out there now threatening to disbar the lawyers who gave us the legal opinions -- threatening contrary to what the president originally said. They're going to go out and investigate the CIA personnel who carried out those investigations," Cheney added.

    Last week, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said he was appointing a special prosecutor to look at data obtained about enhanced interrogation techniques to determine whether criminal acts were committed. The data are the same previously reviewed by career prosecutors in the Eastern District of Virginia, where the CIA is headquartered. The data led to one arrest and conviction.

    The former vice president for months has demanded the CIA release materials to show the effectiveness of harsh tactics in enabling interrogators to get information used to thwart planned attacks.

    This week, the CIA's inspector general released a declassified report on the use of enhanced interrogation tactics. The report said that CIA agents got valuable information but critics insist the results did not justify the methods.

    Watch the entire interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney on "FOX News Sunday," airing at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. ET on FOX News Channel. Check local listings for "FOX News Sunday" airing on FOX networks.

    Re: Cheney: Obama Should Be Debriefing, Not Investigating

    It will be pretty obvious in the coming days that one side of this is purely political and one side of this is purely about the security of this country. Dick Cheney is a patriot of the highest order.

    This administration doesn't have a clue who lives in this country. It has become apparent that they hold the people of this country in contempt. This political maneuver, like all the others they have tried, will backfire on them and erode the confidence of the american people in this administration. Personally, I think it is purely in retaliation for resistance to UHC. As such, it is in retaliation against the people the results of which I can only hope will converge in November 2010.

    Re: Cheney: Obama Should Be Debriefing, Not Investigating

    I think that those who have broken the law should be prosecuted. Cheney is one of those people. The memos that were released make this apparent. I'm curious why justice is not something people want on both sides. I know, you conservatives will tar and feather me, but it seems disingenuous after the whole Clinton thing to cry foul against people who have obviously broken the law.

    Prof, please learn to post in paragraphs.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Killing everyone in the world but Americans would make America safer. Should we launch our nukes? No.

    saving little girls and their grammas is the apogee of goodness

    killing them is bad

    the dangers of second hand smoke are, shall we say, overblown

    Re: Cheney: Obama Should Be Debriefing, Not Investigating

    the prez has treated panetta like a poodle

    after appointing the vet apparatchik to his postion, despite his complete lack of experience in the spy field, the president has sapped him at every turn

    obama has infuriated the left by reversing himself on RENDITION, by failing to close GITMO, but mostly by surrendering on the public option

    so he attempts to appease the piqued by spanking panetta purple

    he's stood by as the cia's been called a cabal of prevaricators by the speakeress, the agents panetta was appointed to represent, to lead

    the white house offered no help vs pelosi's palsied pronouncements, despite a stack of documents which unequivocally contradict her

    obama promised after releasing classified documents in march, that would be the end of his assaults against langley

    just this week, he yanked interrogation away from panetta's agency, creating some extra-legal panel under direct white house control

    panetta's now clearly on record---you are compromising american security by your political manipulations, he apprises his prez

    morale within the agency is assuredly shot, no will take a risk, why should he or she?

    which all means that poor panetta can't SUCCEED in his job

    what's a director to do?

    cuss out higher ups

    and/or quit

    oh well

    obama is the most INEPT politician at the national level america has ever produced

    he's turned LEON PANETTA against him

    " The former vice president for months has demanded the CIA release materials to show the effectiveness of harsh tactics in enabling interrogators to get information used to thwart planned attacks. "

    It's effective to kill a man if he plays his music too loud upstairs, but it doesn't make it legal!
    and so it goes...

    Re: Cheney: Obama Should Be Debriefing, Not Investigating

    too theoretical

    america is more interested in results than abstractions

    that is, you're right about killing the upstairs rocker

    and you may even be as well concerning khalid sheikh mohammad

    (tho i kinda doubt it)

    but, either way, POLITICALLY it's a LOSER

    outside moveon, it goes NOWHERE

    indeed, it rather creates BACKLASH

    put it this way---if obama really wanted to score this POINT, he needed to do it a long time ago

    after all this VACILLATING, his purely political purpose becomes transparent

    gosh, even in chatrooms, the ENTHUSIASM over this issue is GONE

    once more, the prez misplayed it

    listen

    sorry

    Ok, "Ignore torture allegation, investigate blow jobs." The right should run on that platform in 2012.
