Cheney calls for release of memos showing results of interrogation efforts

Cheney calls for release of memos

It's good to know that there is at least one person standing up to the left's latest diatribe.
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.

Cheney said he's asked that the documents be declassified because he has remained silent on the confidential information, but he knows how successful the interrogation process was and wants the rest of the country to understand.
Vice President Cheney has an excellent point. After the attacks on 9/11, the Bush Administration set as it's highest goal the prevention of any additional terrorist attacks on American soil. And to prevent any such attacks, intelligence was of the utmost importance. It was necessary to glean from Al Qaeda operatives in American custody important information about imminent attacks so that such attacks could be thwarted. And guess what. There were no more attacks.

You have to remember that Al Qaeda operatives are mindless zombies who have become so steeped in their doctrine of hate that only under extraordinary means could they be forced to give up valuable intelligence. So in light of that, to protect American lives, enhanced interrogation techniques were developed. And those techniques were vetted by top lawyers to make sure that the rule of law was followed.

Obviously, the administration's tactics worked and potentially thousands of American lives were saved. But the Obama people only wish to concentrate on the interrogation techniques that were used without mentioning why those techniques were necessary while ignoring the successful outcome of the techniques. That is Mr. Cheney's point, and it's a good one.

But of course that is not good enough for the left. Now that they are in power, the left is showing it's true colors. We are beginning to see a power grab by the totalitarian left that will soon leave America with no liberties. This always happens when the left takes absolute power. They start to throw those who disagree with them in jail. Hence, we have a call from loony bin left wing Democrats to throw former Bush Administration officials in jail. And before you know it they will be trying to throw you and me in jail as well. Stalin's gulags will be on the way back if the left gets it's way.

Just like when that liberal hero FDR threw patriotic Japanese Americans in concentration camps, we are in danger of entering another repressive era of left wing abuses. You can just feel it in the air. The left senses it's opening and it will be moving forward with it's draconian plans if the American people do not rise up in anger and put a stop to it.

It is an affront to fair play and decency to call fine patriotic Americans who served the public good in the Bush Administration "criminals." We are entering a dark period in American history. They are coming for Bush Administration officials now. Next, if we don't watch it, they will be coming for you and me too if we dare to disagree with their far left agenda. We are in scary times.
