In torture we trust

on the institutionalization of atrocity

(illustration Ryan Brown)

The controversial interrogation technique of waterboarding was a hot topic in a House Judiciary Committee hearing today, at which Attorney General Michael Mukasey said the Justice Department would not investigate the legality of the actions of U.S. interrogators on terror detainees. CNN's Situation Room reports that Vice President Dick Cheney, an ardent defender of U.S. tactics in the war on terror, was "defiant" about the use of waterboarding on suspects in an appearance today at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C. Cheney said that he supported President Bush's national security decisions, which included the approval of waterboarding along with other harsh interrogation tactics. "I've been proud to stand by [Bush], by the decisions he's made," said Cheney, who then asked aloud, "Would I support those decisions today?", "You're damn right I would," he answered himself, to loud cheers.

"Blessed is the man who endures temptation, and the mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom".

Dick Cheney is far from being such man...., Congratulations Dick, you have just confessed of being guilty of crime against humanity, under & subject to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
