"How is it the Vice President of the United States can say things like this and not be laughed out of the television studio?" writes TalkLeft, "On Larry King Live: Cheney:..And what we're doing down there [in Guantanamo Bay] has, I think, been done perfectly appropriately. I think these people have been well treated, treated humanely and decently. Occasionally there are allegations of mistreatment. But if you trace those back, in nearly every case, it turns out to come from somebody who had been inside and been released by to their home country and now are peddling lies about how they were treated.'"
