Liz Cheney Plays Streisand?
Original poster here. And in pre-production: "On a Clear Day You Can See the US and its Media Elite Taking a Big Runny Shit on International Law and All That Is Moral, Again."
Because let's face it. You didn't even need to watch Liz Cheney ON THE PANEL of ABC's This Week this morning, to know for a bonafide fact that her daddy is not going to court or jail or anything. He's poisoned any possible US jury pool, the Western international community doesn't have the money or the will to prosecute, and the only Arab nations who could afford it are the Saudis and Abu Dhabi. At least some of the Gitmo-ers are there because of Saudi intelligence. And Abu Dhabi is busy investing in US kids movies in Hollywood.
If Cheney goes to jail for anything that happened in Iraq or Guantanamo, then Kissinger has to go to jail for what happened in Chile and Cambodia. And the biggest issue, really, is that the messy unearthing of anything bordering "truth" would just fuck up Sally Quinn's dinner parties forever.
The sad fact is, the Washington beltway media is against any kind of accountability for Bush/Cheney, and the West, in its self-centered move-along world, finds it's too much trouble.
And George Stephanopoulos may go to Hell for framing the "question" about torture, not, "WHO SHOULD BE PUNISHED FOR BREAKING THE GENEVA CONVENTION?" exactly because the answer's daughter is sitting three chairs down. Instead he asks HER question: "DID IT WORK?" which in terms of what "might have happened if we didn't" we will never know.
Go to Hell, George. And tell yourself Sally's canapes are worth it.
