Scared Cheney puts his head in the noose

Closer... closer... Oh please oh please oh please oh please...

Dick Cheney fears being held to account on torture and is lashing out.

How does he possibly think that'll help?

My guess is that he fears he is in trouble. Obama has declined to launch a prosecution of Cheney for war crimes, as many in his party (and outside it) would like. He has set up a review of detention, rendition and interrogation policies. And he has simply declassified many of the infamous torture memos kept under wraps by Bush.

But as the memos have emerged, the awful truth of what Cheney actually authorised becomes harder and harder to deny. And Cheney is desperately trying to maintain a grip on the narrative before it grips him by the throat.

The threat, however subtle, is real... Newsweek described the yet to be released memos thus: “One senior Obama official . . . said the memos were ‘ugly’ and could embarrass the CIA. Other officials predicted they would fuel demands for a ‘truth commission’ on torture.”

The narrative that has taken shape since Cheney left office and lost the chance to stonewall inquiries is damning to the former vice-president.

Mwwwwahahahaha.... Much more here.

Being the good Chicago pol that Obama is, there is a method to what some would call do-nothingness.
I think Barak is gonna give him just enough of a lead rope to hang himself, and take the rest of 'em with him.

Barack is doing exactly the right thing. He is doing it all by the book. Instead of looking like vengeance, it's looking like law and order. Which is a good. thing.

Love you, Maru, you queen of the butt-kickings, you.
