Dick Cheney: The Terminator?

What's with Dick? He is all over the neo-con media, especially Faux News (or “F” word News) saying that Obama cannot defend the US and that Obama will go easy on terrorists. Moreover, he says that torture helped protect the US. Oh yes! Really? Then why were Japanese prosecuted and some given life imprisonment and some hung because they carried out water-boarding and other torture techniques against US POWs. Is it ok if the US commits such crimes and bad and punishable if another nation does the same to US citizens. There should be one international standard which must apply uniformly without exception.

Using torture, Bush/Cheney has created a lot of anger against the US. I believe Obama is right and the only way things can be calmed is to stop torture and punish those who committed such crime.
