“I would assume that the enhanced interrogation program that we put in place produced some of the results that led to bin Laden’s ultimate capture,” said former Vice President Dick Cheney on Fox News.
That’s right! He would assume it. He wouldn’t try to check it out. He wouldn’t hold his tongue if he didn’t know the details. He wouldn’t speak to those who might actually know the facts. He would assume it. And then he would go on torturing people, over and over again.
And if this policy was ineffective, or worse, had catastrophic effects in terms of intelligence gathering and US diplomacy? He would assume that it didn’t.
Gotta hand it to the guy: he’s certainly self-aware.
