Sometimes Its Better To Just STFU

Dick Cheney has a bad case of diarrhea of the mouth since he has been out of office. Yesterday he went on propandist Sean "Have you heard of Jeremiah Wright?" Hannity's show and once again took shots at President Obama and his foreign policy. Now considering the fact that most people believe that Cheney himself was the architect of the torture program at GITMO and that he bears most of the responsibility for the subversion of the Constitution during the Bush Years, you would think this clown would want to go somewhere and hide and hope nobody ever asks questions. Instead he has decided to antagonize from his wheelchair and try to gin up outrage against the Obama administration. Well President Obama had an answer for Dick Cheney today:

President Barack Obama is leaving the door to open to possible prosecution of Bush administration officials who devised harsh terrorism-era interrogation tactics.


Obama has said he doesn't support charging CIA agents and interrogators who took part in waterboarding and other harsh interrogation tactics, acting on advice from superiors that such practices were legal. But he also said that it is up to the attorney general whether to prosecute Bush administration lawyers who wrote the memos approving these tactics.

Be afraid Dick. Be VERY afraid!

*Just want to give a h/t to frequent commenter Jack T who posted the link to the story about President Obama opening the door to torture prosecutions in another thread.

  1. I keep thinking that if Cheney ever got close to a situation where he'd have to testify under oath, he'd just pull a Ken Lay, allowing Yoo and Bybee to pin all the blame on him and walk off without guilt. It's a nightmare I keep having.

    Thanks for the h/t.
