Cheney: Torture Is What Terrorists Did on 9/11

Former Vice President Dick Cheney once again defended the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. “Torture to me is an American citizen on his cell phone making a last call to his four young daughters shortly before he burns to death in the upper levels of the [World Trade Center] on 9/11,” Cheney said. “There’s this notion that there’s moral equivalence between what the terrorists did and what we do, and that’s absolutely not true. We were very careful to stop short of torture.” In fact, he added, “I’d do it again in a minute.” Cheney also responded to news that the United Nations’ Ben Emmerson is pushing for “criminal charges” against those responsible: “I have little respect for the United Nations, or for this individual who doesn’t have a clue and had absolutely no responsibility for safeguarding this nation and going after the bastards that killed 3,000 Americans on 9/11.” His view extends in some ways to Democrats, who are “trashing a very, very good program that worked, that saved lives, that kept us from another attack” – even as we’re in a time of war with “terrorists out there today.”
