President Cheney, who has been seen in a series of television interview recently, has given passed the torture-buck to former President George W. With rumors of war crime indictments still floating around congress like ghost at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the former vice president has already began building a defense. When asked if he had any regrets about authorization of any interrogation threats, he said plainly "No", but when asked if the president knew "everything he knew", Cheney responds defensively with "He basically authorized it."(min 3:20)
If you laud torture as "necessary", and elevate yourself to a Jack Bauer-esque hero, why the sudden poetic allusion, or "Blame Deferred", if you will?
As Democratic nit-pickers pick up on the armor chink, we look forward to both the former president's media tour, and the temporary revival of the Bush impersonations.
