Liz Cheney apparently thinks that the Americans who carried out the “enhanced interrogation methods” are patriots. This right here tells you everything you need to know about the right-wing.
While speaking with guest-host Monica Crowely on Fox’s Hannity, Liz Cheney called President Barack Obama a “disgrace” and “despicable” for admitting that America tortured detainees following the 9/11 attack.
The segment, entitled Enhanced Interrogation, featured Crowley asking the former Wyoming U.S. Senate candidate about Obama’s remarks from earlier in the week, when he admitted that “We did a whole lot of things that were right, but we tortured some folks. We did some things that were contrary to our values.”
This got Cheney fired up:
“You know Monica, this president is an utter disgrace. He’s got a situation where, as your last two reports showed, you’ve got crises erupting around the world. And he is expending more time, more energy, more passion, more aggressive activity in targeting and going after patriots, heroes. CIA officers and others who kept is safe after 9/11. He’s lying about what they did, he’s slandering them, he went to Cairo and did it in 2009.”
She added, “Today he did it from the podium of the Oval Office. It’s a disgrace. It’s despicable.”
It’s so nice to see that the Cheney didn’t fall far from the (prison camp) fence.
Contrary to Cheney’s comments, Obama’s administration hasn’t been pursuing legal prosecution against anyone associated with the interrogation program. But why let the truth get in the way of a good lie?
Crowley continued, asking Cheney if President Obama was highlighting the issues relating to the Bush/Cheney administration because, “his plate is now full of scandals and international crises in large part a direct result of his immediate weakness as Commander-in-Chief.”
Of course Cheney agreed; anything to take the attention away from her war criminal father:
Absolutely. He really would like to change the subject. That press conference today… was an amazing and stunning display of a president, a leader, a Commander-in-Chief who seems to take no responsibility for anything that’s happened on his watch.
As opposed to her father, who’s just rushing to take responsibility for the disaster in Iraq.
