  1. Cheney: Bush Knew About CIA Torture

    He admits he hasn’t read the whole thing, but Dick Cheney insists the Senate report on CIA torture is “full of crap.” He says President Bush was “fully informed” about interrogation techniques, and argues that the report’s insinuation that the spy agency had somehow gone rogue is misleading. The former VP also denies the claim that none of the torture led to useful, unique intelligence. Meanwhile, the UN says U.S. officials should be prosecuted for human rights violations, and Cheney’s former entourage may figure prominently in such an effort.
