Cheney's Tangled Web

Every war is sold to the public by professional liars and totally sincere religious maniacs as a Holy Crusade to save God and Goodness from Satan and Evil. ~ Robert Anton Wilson

Repetition does not transform a lie into a truth. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

I don't debate wit
h liars. ~ Evo Morales
The skill of a professional liar is a wonder to behold. Dick Cheney is such a professional. A professional sticks just enough truth in his lies so no one can tell where the lie begins. Take this example:
The documents released Monday, clearly demonstrate that the individuals subjected to Enhanced Interrogation Techniques provided the bulk of intelligence we gained about al Qaeda. ~ Dick Cheney
True, in that everyone who gave useful intelligence was later tortured. A lie in that the torture itself produced no new information and many false trails. The intelligence came through traditional interrogation. The torture was unproductive and was only done to give Cheney something to masturbate to.
