Dick Cheney admits on camera to ordering the torture of prisoners in U.S. custody on multiple occasions - in violation of international law, national law, and the U.S. constitution. According to United States Federal law, each instance is a felony offense punishable by decades in prison.
Dick Cheney just stated on national TV - boldly, unapologetically, directly to our faces - that the Vice President is above the law.
"But where says some is the king of America? I'll tell you friend, he reigns above, and doth not make havoc of mankind like the royal brute of Britain. ... so far as we approve of monarchy, that in America the law is king."
- Thomas Paine
... so much for that. The rule of law in America is dead.
