    If he authorized the mass torture of liberals what fault would there be in that idea?

    As far as waterboarding is concerned, they should have just used drones. Apparently, killing with drones is acceptable while waterboarding "torture" is not!
    In addition to terrorist suspects, innocent civilians have been killed by drones.
    Thanks for the info. You have helped me improve today.

    I must qualify that statement with "only for the perceptive and curious who were living in those times"

    You were asked the question out of curiosity. Can you can come up with any facts or are you just sharing a belief?

    I lived through those times, and I was paying attention to current events. People made jokes about Dick telling Dubya what to do. It's not a fresh thought for me. And of course I'm not saying that Dick told Dubya what tie to wear in the morning or anything like that.

    Cheney drove the policy and Dubya was just happy to be there. Dubya did bring us Part D of Medicare though. Cheney too cruel for that.

    Yes, I admit I'm reading between the lines. I've never even visited the White House.

    More aptly, those that believe that US did not torture (which would be a very small number of the naive, the disingenuous and those that believe the US can do no wrong) would also believe in Santa Claus. Enjoy your coal.

    When I first joined this site, a lot of people were saying "the US doesn't torture." But when the former VP Dick Cheney says we did, who will argue that anymore?

    Really... are people still arguing the US didn't engage in torture???
