I saw the new documentary about Cheney over the weekend. If you haven't seen it, then you should. The man is a megalomaniacal sociopath who has absolutely no regard for others and no sense of conscience unless it involves someone in his inner circle. He honestly believes he did absolutely nothing wrong and only sees any situation in false dichotomies. Regarding torture, he simply said that we were right to use it because which would we rather do, allow another attack or preserve our honor.... why can't both be accomplished?
