Is Dick Cheney REALLY trying to say that our treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo (no charges, no rights to lawyers, held indefinitely while being subjected to physical and psychological torture), is better – no not just better, but FAR better – than how prisoners are treated in Sweden?

That’s 100% frozen concentrated evil.
