Fomer CIA head says Dick Cheney is vice-president for torture
The former director of the CIA, Stansfield Turner, has claimed that he is, "embarrassed that the United State has a vice president for torture. I think it is just reprehensible."
You have to love it when thieves fall out. Bill Clinton is on record as saying that the war was "a big mistake," the Congress is stirring and popular support for the Chimp is ebbing away. Even the United Nations is refusing to visit the torture centre at Guantanamo Bay because the Americans are placing too many restrictions on the visit.
My guess is that we will be reading lots more stories like this as people from the American elite try to put distance between themselves, a lost war and a president who has left the USA pretty much isolated in the world.
