Cheney calls for release of documents showing the success of interrogation techniques

Former vice president Dick Cheney has called on the Obama Administration to release other memos in their possession that prove the previous administration's use of enhanced interrogation techniques got valuable information that otherwise would not have been gleaned from al-Qaeda prisoners:

Reacting to Obama's controversial decision to release memos written by President George W. Bush's Justice Department that detailed the conditions under which high-level terror suspects could be harshly interrogated, the former vice president said he has formally asked the CIA to release more information about the interrogation program carried out by the Bush administration in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

"They didn't put out the memos that show the success of the effort. There are reports that show specifically what we gained as a result of this activity. They have not been declassified. I've formally asked they be declassified now," Cheney said Monday night.

Of course, the Obama administration has no intention of ever releasing those memos - not when the president is running around the world apologizing for the last 8 years. The world wants to see America humbled and by God, Obama is going to give the world what it wants - even if that means leaving behind an incomplete record.
