Bill Kristol observes: “Of course, everyone’s first choice for president in 2012 is Dick Cheney. But Liz Cheney’s boffo performance yesterday in the lefties’ den, MSNBC, defending sensible interrogation policies in the war on terror, surely puts her in contention for the runner-up position.”
Norah O’Donnell interviews Ms. Cheney on the “torture” controversy in light of the OLC memos and related commentary. O’Donnell is either willfully obtuse or a victim of adult-onset attention deficit disorder. One of the points that Ms. Cheney makes is one that John Hinderaker has frequently made here: that waterboarding is used in training certain of our own military personnel and that we are not torturing them.
Ms. Cheney’s “boffo performance” is accessilble here and is well worth watching in its entirety. Bravo!
