Former VP Dick Cheney Says, “it’s an “outrage” the Obama administration continues to investigate CIA agents who interrogated terror suspects”
IT’S AN OUTRAGE …
Former Vice President Dick Cheney went on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace to discuss the killing of Osama Bin Laden and the continued investigations into CIA agents by the Obama Administration’s AG Eric Holder. Talk about a mixed message and having your cake and eating it to on the part of Barack Obama. As he takes credit for the killing of Bin Laden, he also is having his administration investigate the very individuals who gathered the intelligence. Dick Cheney did provide profs to Obama; however, he also said that the justice probe of CIA agents was an “OUTRAGE”.
Cheney noted there was a “complete investigation” during the Bush administration that concluded the agents had not violated the law. He said the decision by Holder to reopen that case and hand it over to a special prosecutor sets a “terrible precedent.”
“These are government employees. They did nothing wrong, as best as any of us knows,” Cheney told “Fox News Sunday.” “It is an outrage that we would go after the people who deserve the credit for keeping us safe for seven and a half years.”
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld also said Sunday that the Obama administration should set the CIA probe “aside” and move on, calling it a “most unfortunate thing.”
“These people were operating at the direction of the president. They were doing things that had been approved by the Department of Justice,” Rumsfeld said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “And it sends a chill throughout the government.”
The Lonely Conservative reminds us that this is not the first time that the Obama Administration has gone after heroes.Let us not forget when they went after Navy Seals for abusing terrorist.
Oh, and remember when they prosecuted Navy SEALS for “abusing” terrorists? The case fell apart, they were just trying to make examples of them. Now they bask in the glory brought to them by the Navy SEALS.
Which further goes to the questions that Chris Wallace would later ask Obama’s WH Security adviser Tom Donilon that shooting a terrorist in the head was consistent with US values but some how waterboarding wasn’t. I guess the same question can be asked as to Navy Seals being prosecuted for abusing terrorist. They can kill them but not abuse them, really?
