From CNN.com: Clinton mocks Cheney demand

Cheney told FOX News on Monday that the Obama administration should release classified documents revealing the results of aggressive interrogation techniques, so a more “honest debate” can take place about the efficacy of the practices.

“I know specifically of reports that I read, that I saw, that lay out what we learned through the interrogation process and what the consequences were for the country,” Cheney told FOX. “I’ve now formally asked the CIA to take steps to declassify those memos so we can lay them out there, and the American people have a chance to see what we obtained and what we learned and how good the intelligence was.

It’s funny that Dick Cheney, now that he’s no longer Vice President, wants an “honest debate”.  There was no desire for “honest debate” when he was actually Vice President and overseeing one of the most egregious intelligence debacles of all time, the the so called Al Queda/Iraq connection that was used to justify a war that has cost the United States thousands of lives.
