WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday he was offended by Amnesty International's condemnation of the United States for what it called "serious human rights violations" at Guantanamo Bay.
Mr Cheney said:
"I think the fact of the matter is, the United States has done more to advance the cause of freedom, has liberated more people from tyranny over the course of the 20th century and up to the present day than any other nation in the history of the world," he said.
"Just in this administration, we've liberated 50 million people from the Taliban in Afghanistan and from Saddam Hussein in Iraq, two terribly repressive regimes that slaughtered hundreds of thousands of their own people."
Last week Amnesty Internation referred to Guantanamo as a "Gulag". Hmmm, and where was AI during Saddam's reign of terror?
"He doesn't take torture seriously; he doesn't take the Geneva Convention seriously; he doesn't take due process rights seriously; and he doesn't take international law seriously.
"And that is more important than whether he takes Amnesty International seriously."
Got news for you "Amnesty International", he takes two towers and 3000 Americans dead because of the rats you defend VERY serously! Get a clue. When you make idiotic and totally bogus charges about something ONLY because you have a particular liberal agenda NOBODY is going to take you seriously. Quite honestly, I think most of the world is on to your drivel. The Washington Post is!
