Monday With Dick

Just Who is Feeding This A**hole Anyway?

Just Who is Feeding This A**hole Anyway?

Dick Cheney, the former US vice-president who was at the forefront of the post-9/11 push towards aggressive interrogation techniques since denounced as torture, has defended the use of “rectal feeding” of terror suspects, claiming it was done for “medical reasons”.

In a combative interview with NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, Cheney was unrepentant about the so-called “enhanced interrogation techniques” that were deployed under his watch. He swatted away evidence contained in the Senate intelligence committee report into the CIA programme that a suspect later found to be innocent froze to death having been shackled naked to a cell wall, and that detainees were rectally infused with food, refusing to accept a torture definition for either example.

“Torture to me is an American citizen on a cell phone making a last call to his four young daughters shortly before he burns to death on the upper levels of the Trade Center in New York City on 9/11,” Cheney said.

    It’s at least 50° out there today. Too bad this nice weather won’t last until March.

    Doc, Bob’s barber is a woman. He asked her about cutting women’s hair, she said she can cut anyone’s hair. The only difference between her barber shop and a salon is she doesn’t do perms, or dye hair.

    So, I went to her. I think I got a good cut, just too short. She did cut it differently than any beauty shop I’ve ever gone to, a fast snip, snip, snipping, hair flying everywhere.

    I don’t know if I’ll go back to her.
