WASHINGTON, DC – Elizabeth Cheney is likening her father’s defense of waterboarding to Al Gore’s campaign for climate change. She hopes that he will receive similar offers for movie deals and Nobel prizes.
Elizabeth Cheney went on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday to comment on her father’s recent media campaign to defend America’s use of enhanced interrogation methods, which some call torture. In the interview she compared her former Vice President father to Al Gore, who after leaving office started a campaign to fight global warming.
“Al Gore is doing what he feels is necessary to make the world a better place. Unlike Mr. Gore’s claims, we have actual facts to back us up that these methods worked.
“He’s out there advocating what you call torture because he loves his country! There are evil people out there scheming to kill us in our sleep. These methods have saved countless American lives. He is a hero. He deserves a Peace Prize more than Al Gore; all he ever did was scam people into changing light bulbs.”
She then went on to describe how her father was similarly thinking of funding a movie to get his message to a broader audience.
“It’d be like An Inconvenient Truth, only with more truth. And also like, explosions and suspense like Jack Bauer on 24.”
Sources reveal he may likely receive funding from the producers of Wanted and Crank: High Voltage. Michael Bay is currently slated to direct.
Liz then jovially recounted a time when she was 16 and her father had used enhanced interrogation techniques on her. She had planned to sneak out without her parents’ permission and her father used several methods like waterboarding and stress positions to get a confession from her. “If he hadn’t have done that I would never have told him about the party I was going to. In the end I think it made me respect him more.”
