Cheney ‘persists in defending these disgraceful policies … ‘

As quoted in a Washington Post article today looking at Vice President Cheney’s record, HRF CEO and Executive Director Elisa Massimino said Cheney:

“persists in defending these disgraceful policies of abuse which have been rejected by senior retired military leaders and experienced interrogators as ineffective and counterproductive.”

Human Rights First has been working with a group of retired military officers in an effort to end official cruelty and restore America’s commitment to the rule of law.
