Why Is Cheney Providing So Much Reason to Prosecute?
Especially with the report out today
confirming waterboarding wasn't even any use, contrary to Cheney's defense of it. There are only two possible explanations without the one that he truly is proud of this and believes he can just brazen his way through. These are based on the premise something rational is going on:
(1) Making Cheney, the one closest to death of all the Bush administration, the sum and total of useful information and direct attribution a la William Casey in Iran-Contra. Then he either goes crazy(making any testimony impossible) or passes away, or both, taking with him just the chunks of evidence that could have convicted the others.
(2) Daring the Obama administration to arrest and try him, in hopes that a section of the public will rise up, somehow fostering a right-wing coup.
I'm not saying either could work. But they're the only reasons I can see that he's being so peculiarly upfront about this that don't assume he's crazy and/or stupid for real.
Particularly now that he's implicated Bush as well. Watch this video for more on that...
