Watch these video and decide for yourself. Although Cheney says at the beginning of the ABC video (which has the entire interview) that we don't torture, he then goes on to say that he personally approved the waterboarding against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, which has been a war crime for years and punishable by death.
Watch the whole ABC interview here and then watch the video from Countdown with Keith Olberman below.
I am terribly offended by this. We must not let the Bush Administration rewrite history during their last 35 days in office. They committed crimes. Real and actual crimes. Crimes that killed people. Thousands of people. We went to war with Iraq based on lies that have been proven over and over and over again to have been lies.
We spoke out at the ballot box in November 2006 and 2008, but we are not done speaking out. We need to contact our Senators and Representatives and demand that the Bush Administration be held accountable for their actions.
We are better than who we have been the last 8 years. We must take this moral stand. The change we have demanded by electing Obama can't simply be a change of administration. It must be deeper than that in order for it to mean anything.
