What Cheney Forfeited


The above is the front-page of the government paper, Keyhan, in Iran. The big headline circled in red says:

“Evidence of Mousavi’s Betrayal of Iran Exposed!”

And the smaller headline, also circled in red, reminds readers that America has no standing to criticize prisoner abuse any more:

“Evidence of Inhuman Torture of Detainees by Americans in Bagram Prison [Afghanistan]"

There isn't a tyrant anywhere who isn't more legitimate today because of Dick Cheney's adoption of torture as an American value.
