Jonathan Alter says that Dick Cheney is setting a trap for the Obama administration and is laying the ground work for him to give them an "I told you so" on their torture policies in case the United States is hit again by a terrorist attack. He and Keith talk about just how crass that is and whether it would even work given that the political environment in this country has changed since the aftermath of 9-11.
In the mean time, Bill O'Reilly was busy laying that trap during his Talking Points Memo in the very same hour. So sorry Jonathan. Cheney's minions are not waiting until the United States is attacked to get Cheney's talking points out there. They're carrying water for Dick Cheney right now. If the Democrats are going to combat this, they need to do it now.
