No. No amnesia for me, thank you.
As far as Dick Cheney is concerned, I ask you to remember only one thing: the torture program under the Bush administration. He said if he had to start over, he would torture again.
The torture gene must run in the family, as Liz Cheney praised the Trump administration’s review of the treatment of terrorism suspects. As reported by HuffPost:
“Cheney also claimed that the waterboarding works and that it helped elicit crucial information leading to the capture of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden (a theory denied). “It’s clear, since we stopped the enhanced interrogation program, we’re not even in a position, frankly, where we capture people very often,” Cheney said. “We have nothing to do with people when we capture them.” “
Moreover, in 2009, she refused to report births on CNN, saying instead of Barack Obama: “People are fundamentally uncomfortable, and they are fundamentally more and more uncomfortable with a child. American president who seems to be afraid to defend America. She later had to clarify that she personally did not question Obama’s right to be president.
In 2010, an advertisement from Liz Cheney’s “Keep America Safe” group attacked Eric Holder’s Department of Justice. It featured the headline of an Investor’s Business Daily which read: “DOJ: Department of Jihad?” and referred to some of the lawyers the department had hired under the name “Al Qaeda 7”.
Even Republican lawyers, including Ken Starr, condemned the announcement, writing in a letter:
“Suggest that the Department of Justice should not employ talented lawyers who have argued on behalf of detainees denigrates the patriotism of those who have taken honorable positions on contested issues and demands consistency of backgrounds and opinions in office public from which no administration would benefit. “
Weeks before the 2016 election, when an old Trump gang bragging about sexually assaulting women went public, Cheney said, according to the Associated Press, that while Trump’s comments were appalling, she was backing him. always and that, one way or another, that of Hillary Clinton. the handling of his emails was worse than Trump’s admission.
