    Mr Cheney is certainly entitled to his opinion, but a lot of people on this planet, including me, don't agree and would like to see him put on trial for war crimes.

    What do you guys think? Will he ever be VP again?

    Vice-President Cheney reaffirmed that the enhanced interrogation techniques worked. None of those techniques constituted torture under any applicable U.S. law, as the Office of Legal Counsel's very thorough research had established before the techniques were ever used. So the facts do not support your assertion that Mr. Cheney "would torture again."

    The Huffington Post is one notch above Mother Jones and the "urban" throwaway papers they have on the rack by the front door of the bong shop. It would only be a slight exaggeration to call it today's Daily Worker--leftist drivel for the more gullible members of the lumpenproletariat. But I suppose there are still bird cages that need to be lined.

    Good luck with having Vice-President Cheney tried for war crimes. The notion is at least good for a laugh. As far as I know, the last time an ex-Vice-President was ever tried for a serious crime was when Aaron Burr was tried for treason. He was not convicted.

    The notion that he would ever agree to serve as Vice-President again is something from a pipe dream. He is far too old, and his heart, after several surgeries, is in far too weak a condition.

    I believe that it's safe to say that Dick Cheney won't be supervising any more torture sessions, eh?

    As I said, the U.S. never tortured anyone to begin with--so your premise is false.

    That's what you say but many people on this planet don't agree with you.

    In any case Dick Cheney is out of the torture business for now.

    Cheney has already been tried and convicted of war crimes, in Kuala Lampur in Malaysia back in 2009. Kinda helps explain why Malaysian Airlines is on the shist list, eh?

    He and Dubya decided, wisely, not to attend the proceedings and offer any defense.

    I'll take the easy question first: he will never be VP again because no one has ever held that job twice (second terms under the same POTUS don't count). I'm among those who believe enhanced interrogations were significant in disabling AQ and, ultimately, in bringing justice to bin Laden. Beyond that, every country, including ours, would use harsh methods if they were the difference between victory and defeat.

    As opposed to the people on other planets, I suppose. I don't give two hoots in hell what uninformed people think about that, or anything else. I'm sure many of the people who believe the U.S. engaged in torture also believe Elvis is still alive.
