Cheney Describes Obama’s Overseas Trips “Disturbing,” Argues Torture Worked

Via Huffington Post, Dick Cheney was on Sean Hannity’s show last night: 

Former Vice President Dick Cheney slammed President Obama again on Monday night during an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity at Cheney's home in McLean, Virginia.

Cheney pointedly questioned the president's leadership, criticized Obama's overseas trips as "disturbing," said his handshake with Venezuela's Hugo Chavez was "not helpful," and strongly disagreed with the release of the torture memos.

"I've been concerned at the way we've been presented overseas... What I find disturbing is the extent to which he's gone to Europe and seemed to apologize profusely, been to Mexico and seemed to apologize there," said Cheney. "The world out there, both our friends and foes, will be quick to take advantage of that... I don't think we have much to apologize for."

Finally, Cheney defended the use of waterboarding and other interrogation techniques, saying, "It worked. It's been enormously valuable in terms of saving lives and preventing another mass casualty attack on the US."

Cheney formally asked that the Obama administration to release what he claimed are memos that demonstrated the success of those techniques.

"One of the things that I find a little bit disturbing about this recent disclosure is they put out the legal memos, the memos that the CIA got from the Office of Legal Counsel, but they didn't put out the memos that showed the success of the effort," Cheney said.

Dick Cheney is a shit Midas, meaning everything he touches turns to shit.

Again, here’s another a scared little man who thinks that admitting mistakes admits weakness.  Being honest with oneself is honorable.  The problem with the entire Bush administration is the fact that they never once owned up to their mistakes.  They never took responsibility for their actions.  According to them, they were never wrong and what they did was good.  Never mind the mountain of evidence that proves otherwise.  They spent eight years fabricating lies and covering up the truth.  Judging from shit Midas here, they told so many lies, they believe them to be gospel.
