t r u t h o u t - Wilkerson Points Finger at Cheney on Torture

No one seems to call him tricky Dicky

I guess that will always be Nixon, right?
But Cheney seems to have a lot of hooks wiggling around him just now.
This guy is blaming him for the torture policy at just the time he is asking congress to let him carry on with it through the CIA.

Washington - Vice President Dick Cheney's office triggered abuse of Iraqi prisoners with word that filtered down to soldiers in the field that interrogations were not providing needed intelligence, a former senior State Department official has alleged.

Lawrence Wilkerson, who was Secretary of State Colin Powell's chief of staff during President Bush's first term, said Thursday, 'It was clear to me there that there was a visible audit trail from the vice president's office through the secretary of defense down to the commanders in the field.'"
