WASHINGTON – (PTSD News Service) – Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Fox News tonight that he welcomes President Obama’s move toward normalizing relations between the United States and Cuba.   “Having the cooperation rather than the opposition of the Cuban government would make it much easier to expand our operations at Guantanamo Bay.  Just think of how much more interrogations of the enhanced kind we could accomplish at that facility after we are able to expand the base ten fold.”

“We have a bit to learn from the Cuban communists when it comes to getting information from prisoners,” Cheney told Fox News’ Brit Hume.  “And I am looking forward to not only learning their techniques but to personally try them out on our enemy combatants, whether they came from Iraq, Afghanistan or Ferguson, Missouri.”   Dismissing critics of ending the 53 year-old Cuban embargo, Cheney said, “the pros of improving our skills at interrogating outweighs the fact that the Castro brothers are still in power.  And even if the new relationship has a few bumps, what’s a few fingernails and water boards between friends?”

 A new ABC poll indicates that the American public supports Cheney’s position, as 59% say they favor expanding Guantanamo to get the information needed to fight terrorism.  The same poll also shows that Americans by a two to one margin want the next director of Homeland Security to be Jack Bauer of the TV show “24.”
