Sneer–meister Cheney Defends Waterboarding Torture: Let's Torture Him Instead

Sure, it's Illegal to perform waterboarding on a victim in the USA, but okay if you are part of the CIA Anti-terrorism program. Seasoned professionals only, we are assured, are allowed to administer the simulated drowning torture. (Now just how did those professionals get their training? On monkeys? On each other?)

Sneer-meister Cheney defends the treatment, admittedly used against the "mastermind of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks," Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. Cheney? Hello? We know YOU masterminded the attacks and we all know that you were not subjected to this torture that you refuse to even name, instead referring to it as "“a tougher program, for tougher customers.” Ewww.

Now back to Khalid, who confessed to masterminding 9/11 "from soup to nuts," to paraphrase, was probably in bed with Cheney and the Neo-cons with the whole operation. He placed the explosives that brought down the towers. He helped the Bin Laden family escape, etc. Not in the way most of us would imagine masterminding, but with full participation and origination from the helpful US Government.
