VANCOUVER - Noisy, determined opponents of torture surrounded the staid Vancouver Club tonight while self-confessed torturer Dick Cheney entertained wealthy Vancouverites inside at $500 a head. Cheney was flogging his memoirs approving flogging "war on terror" suspects.
Those who wanted to rub shoulders with the US war criminal had to run the gauntlet of human rights advocates crying 'shame' under the protection of the always pushy Vancouver police. Protesters called for Cheney's immediate deportation and for the police to "do their job" and arrest him for war crimes.
