Hey Rep. Conyers, want to issue one for Darth next??
His comments made unmistakable that Cheney—likely more than former President Bush, who has not yet given post-White House interviews—-is willing and even eager to spar with the new administration and its supporters over the issues he cares most about.
See, he says he is ready to chat...he is willing and even eager..how about it.. get it on the record now. Then we can move forward with prosecution, strike while the iron is hot...all that..
“If it hadn’t been for what we did—with respect to the terrorist surveillance program, or enhanced interrogation techniques for high-value detainees, the Patriot Act, and so forth—then we would have been attacked again,” he said. “Those policies we put in place, in my opinion, were absolutely crucial to getting us through the last seven-plus years without a major-casualty attack on the U.S.”
He pulls no punches.. he makes no apologies, he is an unrepentant terrorist. He is threatening us with future attacks even. Come on.. we have to get this guy.
Of one alternative—moving prisoners to the U.S. prisons—Cheney said he has heard from few members of Congress eager for Guantanamo transfers to their home-state prisons, and asked: “Is that really a good idea to take hardened al Qaeda terrorists who’ve already killed thousands of Americans and put ’em in San Quentin or some other prison facility where they can spread their venom even more widely than it already is?”
So these people have developed magic powers while they were in Guantanamo, and are able to do things no one ever in the history have been able to do before. And all the ones that are already in the prisons here in the US, what about them, are they going to rise up soon and take over and murder us in our sleep soon?? Should we be worried about that or is that just supposed to be forgotten??
You know it just amazes me that these people throw this garbage out there, yet they never think about that. We have several of the terrorists already in prisons here in the states.
I just hope someone, either our new AG or Rep. Conyers will take advantage of this and go after this slimy jerk. Not only does he sit in judgement of the President and his policies which we support, but he is stating that the policies that he and shrub did, which were illegal, immoral and just wrong for us all were in his opinion right and kept us safe. Oh, yes, the famous, WE KEPT YOU SAFE lie... Do we need to revisit that one???
