David Addington Hates the Human Race

5 07 2006

Today there was an interesting interview on Fresh Air with Jane Mayer about David Addington, Dick Cheney‘s chief of staff. Mayer contends that David Addington made Cheney the most powerful VP in history. According to Mayer Addington was responsible for memos that authorized the president to fight back worldwide against anyone he decided to associate with terrorism, allowed the government to detain enemy combatants at Guantanamo, and the notorious torture memo which allowed the government to side step US law and Geneva Conventions. Oh yeah, the illegal military tribunals were his idea too.

Listen.
