Two Dangerous Bush-Cheney Myths

Robert Parry, Consortium News: "As George W. Bush and Dick Cheney make their case for some positive legacy from the past eight years, two arguments are playing key roles: the notion that torturing terror suspects saved American lives and the belief that Bush's Iraq troop 'surge' transformed a disaster into something close to 'victory.'

In other words, the perception of the past can affect the future."
