Students Walk out on Dick Cheney, Calling Him ‘War Criminal’ (VIDEO)
http://samuel-warde.com/2014/03/students-walk-dick-cheney-war-criminal/

Video footage shows students walking out on Dick Cheney while he was speaking at American University. The students were protesting his foreign policy, and calling him a “War criminal” as they left the arena.

As reported by American University’s The Eagle, the former vice-president denied allegations that he was a war criminal saying that “the accusation are not true.”

Cheney had previously denied using torture in a pre-talk interview with ATV, the student-run television station at American University, saying: “Some people called it torture. It wasn’t torture.”

They were always being war criminals. This picture was taken while Saddam was fighting a war with Iran using WWI battle 'techniques' that killed a million or so and we were arming them. We also gave them the gas Saddam was using on Iraqi Kurds even while Rumsfeld was feeling up Saddam

They were war criminal then, too.

Students go to an event just so they can walk out? Couldn't they spend their time more productively? Don't they have classes anymore?

The Spanish Inquisition were not at all squeamish about torturing people. They listed the torture techniques they used. They considered water boarding torture, and a particularly effective form of torture at that.

@izzythepush,
Exactly right: torture, not "enhanced interrogation."

Paddy Ashdown, Liberal UK politician served with the SBS. He went through waterboarding as part of his training. He considered it torture, as does anyone who's been put through it.

Well, if by "involved" you mean "not really involved at all," then I suppose I can see your point.

No. In my day, someone would have hit Cheney over the head with a knobbed club and then fed him to the neighborhood dinosaur.

What has also never happened in Joe's rule of law USA is any USA president ever being held to account for their war crimes and terrorist actions.

Nonsense. Saddam brewed his own gas, from precursors sold to him by European states.

Nothing to do with any American conservatives.

Now, for the truth, which Bobsal has already explained.

O’Donnell: Reagan let Saddam buy– and use–chemical weapons
09/05/13 11:50 PM—UPDATED 11/07/13 09:09 PM

Though Ronald Reagan is often touted as a conservative hero, many Republicans have a selective memory about his actual record. Reaganites who object to tax increases of any kind, for example, seem to forget that the man himself actually raised taxes 11 times while in office.

The latest politician to misremember Reagan’s record is Rep. Illeana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida, who invoked the former president Thursday on Fox News concerning the Syria debate.

“We have said as a responsible nation that the use of chemical weapons is prohibited,” Ros-Lehtinen said. ”It is against the norms of international standards and to let something like this go unanswered, I think will weaken our resolve. I know that President Reagan would have never let this happen.”

Except that Ronald Reagan let exactly that happen, repeatedly, when Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons in the 1980s. But there’s more.

“Ronald Reagan didn’t just look the other way when Saddam used chemical weapons–he sold the stuff to Saddam,” said MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell in his Rewrite segment on Thursday. “The President of the United States was Saddam Hussein’s drug dealer.”

O’Donnell cited a 2002 Washington Post article by Michael Dodd that found “the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush authorized the sale to Iraq of numerous items that had both military and civilian applications, including poisonous chemicals and deadly biological viruses, such as anthrax and bubonic plague.”

As is widely reported, Hussein used these chemical weapons against Iranians in the Iran-Iraq war.

After the 1991 Gulf War, U.N. inspectors “compiled long lists of chemicals, missile components, and computers from American suppliers, including such household names as Union Carbide and Honeywell, which were being used for military purposes” in Iraq.

So it’s hard to understand where Rep. Ros-Lehtinen is coming from when she said, “We have to think like President Reagan would do and he would say chemical use is unacceptable.”

“That is what the mythical Ronald Reagan would say,” rebuked O’Donnell. “But the real Ronald Reagan said nothing when Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons, chemical weapons that the real Ronald Reagan actually helped him obtain.”

AND Ollie North sold the Iranians, who were fighting Saddam (who we were also arming), $10Million worth of missile and fighter jet parts that he gave the proceeds from to the Contras.

No "and" about it. Saddam brewed his own gas, from precursors that he bought from European states.

Good for Mr. North. He is a true American hero.
