Borowitz Report December 9, 2014 Cheney Calls for International Ban on Torture Reports By Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Former Vice-President Dick Cheney on Tuesday called upon the nations of the world to “once and for all ban the despicable and heinous practice of publishing torture reports.”
“Like many Americans, I was shocked and disgusted by the Senate Intelligence Committee’s publication of a torture report today,” Cheney said in a prepared statement. “The transparency and honesty found in this report represent a gross violation of our nation’s values.”
“The publication of torture reports is a crime against all of us,” he added. “Not just those of us who have tortured in the past, but every one of us who might want to torture in the future.”
Saying that the Senate’s “horrifying publication” had inspired him to act, he vowed, “As long as I have air to breathe, I will do everything in my power to wipe out the scourge of torture reports from the face of the Earth.”
Cheney concluded his statement by calling for an international conference on the issue of torture reports. “I ask all the great nations of the world to stand up, expose the horrible practice of publishing torture reports, and say, ‘This is not who we are,’ ” Cheney said.
Oh its all out there in the alternative media! Now we just have to get the folks to believe and understand it.
Little by little though I see it is actually happening. Every now and then I watch lame stream media news and I see glimpses of the truth coming out.
It is kind of like not seeing your grand kids for a time and then seeing how much they have grown and changed. The people here in the US actually taking to the streets in protest over the insane police that are out of control is the crux. MSM has no choice but to start to report the real news! Baby steps....
