Meanwhile: Obama STILL has not released the memos Cheney claims show how waterboarding THREE terrorists saved American lives!
Like other Democrats, Senator Carl Levin, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, recently claimed that former Vice President Cheney is lying about proof that the waterboarding of the three worst terrorists, including the mastermind of the September 11th attacks, yielded information that saved American lives.
Obama could the settle the matter and release those memos with a stroke of the pen. The methods and techniques have already been fully disclosed by Obama's prior release of similar classified memos. There is no valid national security reason these memos cannot be released.
Former Vice President Cheney has been pounding this case for months now to no avail. His very public faceoff with President Obama in May raised his visibility on the issue more.
On Monday, Mr. Cheney continued his push to get the information released in a wide ranging address at the National Press Club followed by a Q&A session with questions submitted by the audience. For those of you who are interested in following this important story closely, you can view the Cheney speech and Q&A at the National Press Club web site. You'll notice the questions he was asked were much tougher than anything Obama has been asked on this same subject.
Cheney followed that speech with an appearance on Greta Van Susteren's show "On the Record." His daughter Liz Cheney, who has become very popular as a qualified spokesperson on these issues in her own right (Former Deputy Asst. Secretary of State)also appeared with her father.

Dick Cheney's unmatched experience on these issues makes his opinion all the more credible. That's exactly why the left attacks him so viciously!
