CNN is running a story on Lawrence Wilkerson's claim that Dick Cheney ordered a detainee to be waterboarded in order to prove an Iraq-al Qaeda link. As Thomas Joscelyn wrote yesterday, Wilkerson's facts simply do not add up.

Also note Wilkerson's weasling statement to CNN:

"I couldn't walk into a courtroom and prove this to anybody, but I'm pretty sure it's fairly accurate".
