This guy is a war criminal. He should be tried for treason, not allowed to sell books to augment his ill-gotten fortunes and to try to whitewash the evil he has done.

He and Bush should be tried for War Crimes! They both denied the water-boarding while in office, but now both openly admit ordering it. What’s wrong with us when our government want prosecute criminals.

@dkbaz I may not support what he says, but I do support his right to say it.

I think putting him on trial would just be a waste of time and focus our attention on something very trivial. While I believe what he did was wrong, it would really be a waste of media resources given things going on in Africa and the Middle East. Then again, so is Sarah Palin, but the press still wastes their time watching her.

Cheney is rewriting history and his book shows what a self-serving stubborn know-it-all he is. His advocacy of torture and his relentless drive to unilaterally attack a country without provocation, killing over a 100,000 people is cause to try him for war crimes. He needs to be held accountable even though the Obama administration wants to move on.

Wow! Do I 100% agree with Gerryjim on this turncoat. Why would he want to be remembered for throwing all his colleagues under the bus?

As a psychologist, it was easy to see the Dick Cheney was an unpopular child growing up who has sought to revenge this his entire adult life. He is nasty man who is undemocratic and actually stands against the American way of life. Nobody will miss you when you’re gone, Dick.
