“President Authorized Torture Techniques”: Cheney and Rove throw Bush under the Bus

Cenk Uygur “The Young Turks” | —

“”Former President George W. Bush knew about and authorized the CIA’s use of harsh interrogation techniques, such as waterboarding, sleep deprivation and other controversial tactics, according to Karl Rove, Bush’s former top political adviser.

A report released last week by the Senate Intelligence Committee asserted that Bush was kept in the dark about the agency’s rough treatment of detainees until 2006.
Rove on Sunday disputed that claim.

“No. In fact … his book describes how he was briefed and intimately involved in the decision,” Rove said on “Fox News Sunday,” referring to the former president’s book, Decision Points.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur breaks it down.”

  1. A dynastic President of limited capacity being influenced by those inspired by pure evil has left a broad stain (protected by law) on our once great country which will take decades to cleanse, if ever.

    • Establishing an outlaw multinational TORTURE network funded for years by the U.S. Congress.
    • Starting two unnecessary and destructive foreign wars lasting well over a decade costing TRILLION$ STOLEN from the U.S. Treasury by a complicit Congress.
    • Precipitating the pointless combined deaths and maiming of hundreds of thousands of completely innocent U.S. military and foreign nationals.
    • Deregulation of planet killing emissions.
    • Facilitating the acceleration of the transfer of our national wealth into the hands of fewer and fewer people.


    • Amen! Incredible amount of suffering caused by a mere handful of severely damaged but privileged people. Those responsible should experience extraordinary rendition and trials/convictions for their crimes in international court. It is clear no one in our government is willing to bring them to justice; maybe someone from the outside will.
