Saying Bush didn't know about this is like saying Obama didn't know the IRS or NSA scandals or that Cristie didn't know about the bridge scandal.

Threw him under the bus for what purpose?

Lol, no. It was in defense of Bush and the notion that he didn't "trust himself" not to know the details as was alleged in the report. Also "LOL" at the OP's notion that President Bush would somehow 'face trial'.
I see it the same way.I see it this way. Yesterday, Bush was out of the prosecution loop because he didn't know anything until 2006. That made Cheney the top dog in prosecutions. He'd be the head honcho for blame. Today, we find Bush actually knew everything from the beginning. Ergo, now instead of Cheney being prosecuted for the torture program as the top man in charge, the prosecution bypasses Cheney and goes after the Head Honcho (the decider) in charge.
I'm doubtful that anyone is gonna be prosecuted for any of this crap.That's what I mean by throwing Bush under the bus so Cheney can save his own ass, eh? Perhaps we'll see a lot more of this. Rice, Rummy, Gonzales, Yo, and others might be thinking similar thoughts, don't ya' know?
And if anyone was to be prosecuted and Cheney wasn't, I'd be really disappointed.
Sorry about the delayed response, I was out buying truffles and brandy snifters.
