Wanker of the Day: AP Washington Bureau Chief Ron Fournier
As I have said many times, the media are criminally complicit in war crimes. This is one very clear example:
On the Daily Kos Web site, one blogger noted the standing ovation [at the CPAC conference, ed.] given to "the self-confessed war criminal Dick Cheney."Digby:
Whatever one might think of Cheney's interrogation policies, the former vice president has never been charged with a war crime, much less confessed to one.
It's true that Cheney has never been formally charged with a war crime, but Dick Cheney did go on national television just a week ago and blithely admit, “I signed off on it; others did, as well, too,” when he was asked about waterboarding.
Waterboarding is a war crime.
