NBC News Gets Last Word After Dick Cheney Interview: ‘Torture Is a Crime’
Breitbart TV ^ | 8/30/11 | NBC

Posted on 08/30/2011 10:34:27 AM PDT by Nachum

After VP Dick Cheney's interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show, the camera pulls back and very deliberately captures the image of a protest sign. Watch the segment and ask yourself if this appears to be planned and maybe even rehearsed.

Jay Leno (on NBC) last night showed the cover of Cheney's book--Torture in the Rye.

Same question to the ass clowns at NBC as to the Democrat party propaganda bots.

Define what you mean by "torture".

See what the propaganda bots at the DNC never have been forced to admit is "torture" to them is merely a convenient emotional buzz word to shout. "Torture" and "enhanced interrogation" are two completely different things.

I have an idea, make the terrorists watch Lauer’s show. I bet they crack right quick.

I agree..he should have stiffed them..but I suspect that’s part of the deal he worked out with his publisher, in return for the advance/guarantee..he’ll do whatever they book him on...

“Torture Is a Crime”

####

Sometimes.

But failing to obtain actionable intelligence, from known murderers, in order to proactively save the lives of innocents, is ALWAYS a crime, and a manifestation of cowardice.

If we find and capture someone plotting to kill Americans I hope we waterboard the SOB immediately. Should the process yield leads on other terrorist activities, great. If it doesn’t, I’m still entirely fine with the effort. No guilt or concern of any kind. NONE.

The libtards at MSBC can rightfully label me redneck, extremist, etc. They fail to understand our enemy in the war on terror; they fail to accept the reality of what must be done to ensure our safety... and survival.

it would have been great is Cheney had hammered Lauer about having G.E. as a boss and G.E.’s bailout money, no federal income taxes, & shipping jobs overseas...and how he could work for such a company

I’m beginning to perceive why Leno got his gig back at NBC. His unwritten Mission Statement to get and keep the gig is a requirement that he publicly and unendingly stand out there on stage and make a consummate a$$ of himself by mouthing all the daily ‘Rat talking points.....cleverly couched as “humorous” little zingers, of course; e.g. His unfailing daily attempts to recycle lying wisecracks about Sarah Palin; among others, ad nauseum./Sarc.

Right. Torture is what those other guys do.

Cheney is one of the worst threats in the history of the Constitution.

There were “serious” liberals who answered this question to the affirmative -

“Would it be better for another 3000 people to die than to ‘torture’ one terrorist?”

Most of those that answered that question to the affirmative remained consistent when the 3000 had some of their own loved ones.

I guess to answer otherwise would destroy the premise on which they base their own sense of self worth.

Frankly, I loved seeing Dick Cheney on NBC. He goes right into the den of lions and kicks their ass. I also love this picture of Dick Cheney:

I’m reminded of Nick Berg’s insane and frothing-at-the-mouth LiberalIdiot father, who days after his son had his head sawn off on international TV, felt it absolutely necessary to attend an anti-Bush, anti-WOT rally.

It is a bit difficult to stategize for warfare against a cultural segment that is suffused with lunatic zealots.

Murphy’s Fifth Law of Warfare:

‘If it’s stupid, but it works. It AIN’T stupid!’

Though LEGAL would be a pertinent word. The rule still applies.

Patiently waiting for some teenaged, Non-Caucasian Useful Idiot to immolate them self ala the once a day Buddhist Monks outside the US Embassy in Saigon during the 1960s in protest to the war. Even though their Pyrrhic deaths did nothing to speed anyone to Peace Negotiations. Bombing Hanoi did!

Maybe it will start a trend.

Jack.

“Torture Is a Crime”

Well, yeah, but what constitutes “torture”? That’s sorta the argument.

With the “intellectual liberals”, you have to understand the promise of communism means to them.

It means the same as the “new heavens and new earth” means to a Christian. It means freedom from evil and all forms of hardship, the perfection of mankind, and perfect justice being served to all.

This is what you see when you see a liberal doing what Nick Berg’s father did. This is what you see when you see a lib endangering themselves in the name of “peace”.

And nothing short of a conversion to Christianity will put the lie to the promise of communism. This also tells you where the concept of communism originates from - “you will be as gods”.

Waterboarding is NOT torture!

It was a part of officer training for a very long time.
It doesn’t do any lasting physical damage.

These wimps would call it “torture” if we withheld M&Ms from prisoners.

No way. It certainly isn't a crime if you're pro-choice.

"If it's stupid, but it works. It AIN'T stupid!"

Though LEGAL would be a pertinent word...

So: "If it's legal, but it works, it ain't legal!" Sounds like Democratic reasoning.

If you think Cheney is more dangerous to the US Constitution then the current 0 Administration, you are so completely brain dead you should NEVER vote again.

Same challenge to you. Define Torture.

Enhanced interrogation and torture are 2 completely different things.

Sorry if the truth about this upset your simplistic, emotion based political dogmas

That is perhaps the most ignorant statement I have ever read from a Freeper.

You deserve whatever the Islamists intend to do to you as an American, even though I myself do not wish it upon you.

So factual reality doesn't fit your bigoted little political dogmas so of course reality is wrong and your emotion based Libertine Party dogma is right.

Your arrogant ignorance is inexcusable in a supposedly rational adult mind
