Dick Cheney's Deceit of Shakespearean Proportions

“Anti-torture”?

When you say “Barack Obama, a resolutely anti-torture president,” whom are you referring to exactly? Obama has done absolutely nothing to change the institutionalized practices of human rights violations that were left in place when Bush left office. None of the illegal kidnappings (“renditions”), habeus corpus violations, indefinite imprisonment, drone strikes etc. have been substantially altered.
