Finally, We Have Death Squads

I think we can now retire as a country. We've achieved all there is to achieve.
Renowned investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, who said that former Vice President Dick Cheney ran a secret assasination rign outside the purview of Congress, is standing by his claim in light of a recent New York Times report that appears to cover similar ground.
Seymour! He's all up in the death squad! You go, girl.
"I said what I said, they can always say what they say," Hersh told Sarlin. "The last time they said 'the government doesn't torture'; this time it's 'the government doesn't assassinate.'"
Oh, I hear what you're sayin'.
"Under President Bush’s authority, they’ve been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving. That’s been going on, in the name of all of us."
We've gone all mid '80s El Salvador. Saawwweeeeeeet.

Why are people getting all upset over Cheney’s illegal death squads, illegal torture techniques, illegal NSA spying program, lets face it, nothing will happen to him, they might investigate, the justification will be 9/11, 9/11, 9/11 or you are only giving ammunition to our enemies and in the end nothing will happen, he is part of the ruling class. The chickens are coming home to roost from the operatives that stole the election for Bush/Cheney 2000 in Florida and 2004 in Ohio. I love listening to Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck, these chicken hawks on the War of Terror have become chicken little’s that the sky is falling when it comes to the economy, too funny.

Nothing will happen here, because Congress if full of cowards. But Cheney and Company will be war criminals outside the US and unable to travel.
