Cheney, Rove On Sunday Shows: Bush Knew About Enhanced Interrogation Techniques

Screen Shot 2014-12-15 at 10.32.55 AMFormer President George W. Bush knew of the enhanced interrogation techniques before 2006, said two high ranking officials of his administration yesterday on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace and “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd.

Senior advisor to the Bush White House, Karl Rove, and former VP Dick Cheney combatted doubts that the former President was unaware of the program’s harsh methods on the DC-based Sunday programs, respectively.

“The report says President Bush didn’t know about these enhanced interrogation techniques until 2006. You were there. Was that true?” asked ”Fox News Sunday”‘s Chris Wallace on the show.

“No. In fact … his book describes how he was briefed and intimately involved in the decision,” said Rove. “He made the decision. He was presented, I believe, 12 techniques, he authorized the use of 10 of them, including waterboarding.”

Similarly, Chuck Todd posed a question to the former vice president on “Meet the Press” asking how the former president was briefed on the matter of the EIT’s, to which Cheney bluntly responded, “he was briefed.”

Howard Kurtz Gets Unintentionally Ironic

In the new Fox News First morning newsletter by Chris Stirewalt today is a promo for Fox News media writer Howard Kurtz. To be sure, the newsletter is reminiscent of Politico Playbook in that it highlights their own, including Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry and Karl Rove. Here Stirewalt has Kurtz wondering whether Al Jazeera America, which launches today, can be — cough cough — unbiased. Come on Howie, considering the network who’s wondering, seriously?

AL JAZEERA AMERICA DEBUTS
Al Jazeera, a network that many Americans still associate with Usama bin Laden videos, launches its American channel in about 50 million homes today.
