Today’s Quote: Cheney’s Sickly Sweet Smell of Success

“Did it [torture] produce the desired results? I think it did
“Khalid Sheikh Mohammed … provided us with a wealth of information. There was a period of time there, three or fours years ago, when about half of everything we knew about al Qaeda came from that one source.
“So it’s been a remarkably successful effort ”
— Dick Cheney, as quoted by CNN, April 23, 2009.

So remarkably successful they couldn’t find Osama bin Laden nor break up the al-Qaeda camps in Pakistan. Waterboarding KSM 183 times sure did defeat the terrorist threat, didn’t it, Dick, the same threat the Republicans are still crying about.
