|Dick Cheney -- and some of us have been saying this for years -- is a bloodthirsty killer, an honest-to-god murderer who, when given the chance, will kill with impunity and without remorse. |
Yesterday, as he continues his "Goddamit, I'm Innocent Tour - 2009,″ he spoke at the National Press Club in Washington, and, as he does each time he opens his mouth, he further indicted himself on future charges of war crimes -- charges that will have to be brought by a government other than ours since ours is run by cowards and possible co-conspirators.
"We don't operate that way," he said. And, in fact, he's being honest. Cheney never, ever operates that way, in the open, with witnesses, using some code of conduct whether it's political, religious, military, or something devised by Giant Spiders. No, Cheney operates in the darkness where sounds are muffled and the screams are quickly silenced. Ask our new commander in Afghanistan, Lt. General Stanley McChrystal. He might know. In fact, he could probably reveal a great deal about the former Vice. For example, the whereabouts of Mr. Cheney during those long, unexplained absences that were so frequent during the administration of President Chucklenuts.
In an article published May 16, 2009, titled, "McChrystal was Cheney's Chief Assassin" it was reported? suggested? revealed? that . . .
You believe that sh*t? I certainly do. Of course, one must presume that Lt. General McChrystal would never, ever rat out his former handler. Not even under conditions of, um, enhanced interrogation. No, the Lt. General will keep mum on who was "targeted" (back in the day it was called "terminated with extreme prejudice"), who ordered the hit, when, where, and how it was accomplished.
But, there is a partial record, of sorts. Human Rights Watch has documented one particularly grisly form of murder. (And I am sure it was ordered -- please forgive my jumping to conclusions -- by Vice.) Death by Shipping Container...
The "extreme heat" referred to inside the containers were temperatures in excess of 140 degrees Fahrenheit. (Consider where the containers were located: The Afghanistan desert.) At that point human flesh begins to slowly cook. When the shipping containers were opened in the early morning, the corpses would be shoveled out into canvas bags for burial in the desert.
And, of course, Death by Shipping Container was only one method of murder ordered by (please forgive my jumping to conclusions -- again) Vice. There was also plain, old fashioned beating.
Ah, it just goes on and on, doesn't it? The tales of absolute horror slowly leaking out; Dick Cheney continuing his "Goddamit, I'm Innocent Tour - 2009″; the Democratic Party leadership in the House, the Senate and the White House utterly refusing to order an inquiry, a hearing, an investigation.
So, where do you suppose it'll all end?
