Very true. It’s disturbing hearing about what was done and seeing some people try to sugarcoat it.
You are right, there is no excuse for bad behavior though those responsible act righteous to defend their actions. It’s disgusting.
Amazing how people can rationalize such things.
It really is, the only thing is that those responsible for allowing it really believe their delusion.
Honestly, I’m waiting for a scapegoat to appear.
There may never be one as torture will fade from the news like most things do in our entertainment driven society.
Yup. Media is already moving onto the next thing.
How very true and on a slow news day they dredge up something old and beat it to death…again.
Something I found odd today. The paper had the Australia terrorist attack a few pages in. Those events used to be cover news and now it seems the media is a little bored with them. I had to go looking on Yahoo for info.

Two wrongs never make a right
You are absolutely right Pam, thank you so much for the kind re-blog.
I assume that this is about the deplorable actions of our CIA? It is deplorable what we do in the name of greed and power!
Yes it is and our illustrious former Vice President says the torture report is “crap” and that he regrets nothing that the Bush/Cheney administration did. Very sad.
That’s the saddest part of this — well, of course he feels no remorse. Of course he thinks it’s crap. That’s how he’s survived this long, politically, when *everybody* knows that he’s a poor excuse for a human being, lower than a dog turd. No remorse. Show now “weakness”. And keep going as if nothing happened. I don’t know if I want to weep or vomit. 😦
Nicely done though, Dom —
Thanks Jen, that man absolutely repulses me…I guess even God doesn’t want him since he keeps pulling him out of the jaws of death. You are right, a poor excuse for a human being.
And you have to wonder how many people on the heart transplant list waited until they died — yet he got one — a waste of a decent heart.
Or perhaps it was considered a heart “implant”? Not sure he had one to begin with.
I really do agree with you on this. That “man” was considered despicable before he was VP and he certainly is confirming things after. 😦
We have learned a lot lately about the Reagan and Bush years but, honestly, I don’t think we’ve come even close to completely knowing the depth of their corruption!
You are absolutely right, I’m somewhat nervous to find out what other despicable acts wait in the wings, I fear that they may be many times worse than what we now know.
