Liz Cheney: We Did Not Torture

Liz Cheney joins the ranks of those who are defending torture. Somehow she thinks that because the United States used waterboarding as part of the SERE training and that since we would not torture our own people, that this means that waterboarding (along with the other techniques described in the torture memos) are not torture. She even goes so far as to say that the memos were very careful in outlining how far we could go before it was considered torture. (Waterboarding for 39 seconds = not torture, waterboarding for 41 seconds = torture?) Nevermind the fact that the Bush Administration did not even abide by the regulations set out in their own legal memos.
