Dick Cheney refuses to call CIA's brutal interrogation techniques 'torture'

Was never a great fan of Cheney but I have to say I agree with him 100% on these issues. I would say "we could use a few more like him in our government today" !! At least he doesn't back down or change his story just to satisfy what people want to hear....

 'I'd do it again in a minute,' former vice president says.
      Former Vice President Dick Cheney refuses to call the enhanced interrogation techniques detailed in last week's Senate Intelligence Committee report on the CIA's brutal handling of prisoners "torture."
“We were very careful to stop short of torture,” Cheney said on "Meet the Press" Sunday. The Senate has seen fit to label their report torture.  But we worked hard to stay short of that definition."
"All of the techniques that were authorized by the president were, in effect, blessed by the Justice Department opinion that we could go forward with those without, in fact, committing torture,” the former vice president continued.
Cheney said he defines torture as "an American citizen on a cell phone making a last call to his four young daughters shortly before he burns to death in the upper levels of the Trade Center in New York City on 9/11."
"Meet The Press" host Chuck Todd asked if the "involuntary rectal feeding" detailed in the Senate Intelligence Committee's report met the legal definition of "torture."                             READ STORY
